Tom Mulcair wins the French debate

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair won tonight’s French-language TVA debate.

Mulcair demonstrated leadership and passion while laying out his plan to kick-start the economy and shared his bold vision to address climate change and his intention to restore Canada’s role as a leader on the world stage.

Here are a few of his highlight from tonight’s debate:

“You never met a war you didn't like,” Mulcair said to Harper,

“When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like nails. The reality is, as you just said, the world is a dangerous place. I agree with you but I am convinced that it is not by dropping more bombs that we will make the world a safer place.”

“You voted for several of Stephen Harper’s budgets. I can assure you that I never voted for a Stephen Harper budget. You supported Stephen Harper on Bill C-51, you supported his economic, social and environmental policies. We are working against Stephen Harper. We will beat and replace him," Mulcair said to Justin Trudeau.

"The Conservatives pulled out of Kyoto. The Liberals signed it for PR purposes and had the worst record in the world - a rise in 34% of greenhouse gasses. Mr. Chrétien’s former chief of staff admitted that they didn’t have a plan, nor any intention to do anything,” said Mulcair. “The NDP has a very clear plan that we will bring to the conference in Paris to make sure Canada has real targets.”

Tom Mulcair achieved his goal tonight. He showed voters that he is the best option to defeat and replace Stephen Harper.

“I know one thing, on October 19, Canadians will chose themselves a new government.”
