Election Debates Start Tonight

The French-language leaders' debate will air live tonight on CBC Newsworld from 5 to 7 pm and be anchored by Don Newman, host of Politics on CBC Newsworld.

The English-language debate will be anchored by CBC News anchor Peter Mansbridge, and moderated by the CBC's Anna-Maria Tremonti. It will air live tomorrow 5 to 8 pm on CBC-TV, CBC Newsworld and CBC Radio.

Some say the debates will be a side show and are unlikely to help voters make up their minds. However, because of the closeness of polling of this go around, the debates could make a difference.
