What they’re saying about Tom Mulcair’s performance at the leaders’ debate

OTTAWA - NDP Leader Tom Mulcair brought his Campaign for Change to the TVA Debate. Tom won the debate hands down and the pundits agree.

Here is what people are saying:

I make it Mulcair, Trudeau, Harper. I’ll leave to others where to place Duceppe as every time he was on he made me want to break something.

Mulcair just dinged 'em a good one.

Mulcair, meanwhile, is definitely coming out swinging here vs. both Trudeau and Harper.

Mulcair: You voted for Harpers budgets. I didn't. You voted for C-51. I didn't.

Feisty Mulcair. Here he is.

 Mulcair really destroyed Trudeau's "Harper's budget" talking point, effectively tied Trudeau to Harper on policy after policy #faceafaceTVA

Boom, boom, boom, @ThomasMulcair calls a pile of #CPC MPs racists, namely Miller and Williamson.

Harper and Duceppe in a pitched battle and Mulcair moves in as the reasoned voice. He's done that a couple of times.

WOAH Mulcair links the niqab ban to missing and murdered indingeuous women. He's gone from zero to hero on this.

I'd give that round to Mulcair on points, at least compared to his previous debates: no temper, and that vote-for-CPC-budget thing hurt

Mulcair 5, Harper 4

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