Federal Liberal Party debate taking place in GTA Saturday

The nine candidates competing for the leadership of the Federal Liberal Party will hold a debate on Saturday in the GTA.

The International Centre in Mississauga will play host to the third of five scheduled debates, with the debate set to get underway at 1 p.m.

Some of the topics being covered include job creation, transit and infrastructure, as well as immigration.

The Globe and Mail has reported that this debate will feature a series of one-on-one exchanges between candidates, including probably the most hyped one, which will feature Justin Trudeau and Marc Garneau.

Garneau called out Trudeau earlier in the week, arguing the Liberal Party is set to repeat past mistakes by crowning a new leader without challenging him on policy matters.
