OTTAWA - NDP Leader Tom Mulcair brought his Campaign for Change to the Leader’s Debate – and won the debate.

Here is what people are saying:

“Predictions have been right - this is turning into an exchange between #mulcair and #harper - #trudeau still looking for a foothold”

– Cameron MacIntosh (CBC News)

“Where was the indigenous question in the first debate - the most important issue. Only Mulcair made a serious attempt. The PM - not a word.”

– John Ralston Saul (Author)

“Mulcair correct: Canada shouldn’t spend $ fighting #FirstNations in court, work with us nation-to-nation”

– Perry Bellegarde (Assembly of First Nations Chief)

“Mulcair got Harper to admit we're on the way to a recession…”

– Amanda C. Connolly (iPolitics)

“…I'm onside with Mulcair and the NDP in terms of abolishing the Senate. It needs to be done."

– Michael Taube (Sun Media)

“Mulcair slams Harper on Senate."

– Raffi Cavoukian (Singer-Songwriter)

“Mulcair much stronger on the Senate now. ‘Undemocratic, unelected, a relic of our colonial past.’”
“Mulcair rattling off names of Russian tycoons not being sanction by Harper. Asks him directly. Acidic.”

– Justin Ling (Vice)

“Mulcair at his best here.”

– Andrew Coyne (Postmedia)

“Mulcair was ready for Trudeau's ‘why won't you raise taxes on the rich’ jibe with a pretty good answer.”

– Adam Radwanski (Globe and Mail)

“Mulcair is relaxed, measured, making his points. He's having a good night.”

– Michael Den Tandt (Postmedia)

“I wish I could stay as calm as Mulcair when people yell around me.”

– Rachel Ward (Edmonton Journal)

“Wow, great answer from Mulcair. He just painted himself as the only reasonable person on the floor.”

– Emmett Macfarlane (National Post)

That’s why more and more Canadians are putting their trust in Tom Mulcair to bring change to Ottawa.
