Executive reports

 

The Mini-Debate Marathon is a special open house event for members and guests of the Toronto Debating Society. Normally, membership is required to participate in a debate – but tonight participation is open to all. Try your hand at debating in a fun and frivolous environment with new hands and old to help newcomers and guests participate.

 

The evening will consist of several mini debates between two speakers; the Prime Minister, or the responding Leader of the Opposition. The PM will speak for 2:00, the LO will respond for 3:00 and finally the PM will have the final word for 1:00.

The winner will be chosen by a show of hands from the audience.

The speakers can chose the debates and the positions they wish to take during the evening.
