Liberal leadership duke it out in debate

Liberal leadership hopeful Justin Trudeau found himself being pressed by rival Marc Garneau in a candidates debate in Toronto today.

Garneau questioned what qualifications Trudeau has for the party's top job and chided him on a lack of any specific policies.

He accused Trudeau of merely talking in generalities on the policy side and says being a good leader takes more than just being a good speaker.

Trudeau stressed his ability to connect with people and says that's the key to leading the Liberals back to power.

He cited his success in winning his Montreal-riding over the Bloc Quebecois two elections ago.

Trudeau says leadership is also about winning and ridiculed Garneau's policy ventures, saying the next Liberal leader won't be able to win over Canadians with a five-point plan.

The Liberals will pick a new leader in April.
