>> JUST HOW THEY DIVVY UP THE TIME FIRST OF ALL YOU THINK 120 MINUTES, 14 PEOPLE THEY’VE GOT LESS THAN — THERE GOES MY MATH NOT A LOT OF TIME EACH WHAT I AM GOING TO BE WATCHING FOR IS STAGE CRAFT HOW IS THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY GOING TO MANAGE THESE 14 PEOPLE ON STAGE AND HOW WILL THEY GET TO INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHERMENT WE’VE HAD ONE DEBATE ALREADY THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE IN THIS DEBATE THAN THE LAST THERE WERE 12, NOW THERE ARE 14 THEY KEEP ON GROWING I’M GOING TO WATCH FOR THAT, THEN I’M GOING TO WATCH FOR STRATEGY THEY HAVE TO TRY TO DIFFERENTIATE THEMSELVES AND DO SOMETHING WE’VE SEEN TODAY SOME REALLY DRAMATIC COMMENTS OVER THE LAST WEEK WITH THE [Indiscernible] IN ALBERTA AND TODAY WITH BAD TROST SUPPORTING CHRIS ALEXANDER AND THE LOCK HER UP STATEMENT I’M LOOK FOR THAT >> TRYING TO GET ON THE TRAIN, I GUESS, LET ME GET SOME ATTENTION TOO LINDSAY? >> IT’S GOING TO BE INTERESTING I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN REALLY HAVE A WIDE ANGLE LENS ENOUGH TO CAPTURE ALL 14 CANDIDATES IN ONE CAMERA SHOT I THINK THAT’S GOING TO BE DISTRACTING FOR SOME IT’S FANTASTIC TO SEE THEM ALL TOGETHER ON THE SAME STAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME I THINK THE BILINGUAL ELEMENT IS GOING TO BE STRESSFUL FOR SOME I’M GOING TO BE LOOKING TO SEE HOW THEY MANAGE THEMSELVES IN FRENCH AND ENGLISH WITHOUT THE TRANSLATION IT’S STRESSFUL ENOUGH TO BE UP ON A STAGE HOW YOU DEAL WITH QUESTIONS IN BOTH OFFICIAL LANGUAGES IS GOING TO BE A CHALLENGE I AGREE WITH KATHLEEN THAT ORIGINALLY IT WAS KIND OF A VERY JOBS ECONOMY FOCUS IN THE FIRST DEBATE BUT NOW IT’S PROBABLY GOING TO MOVE INTO WHERE DO YOU STAND ON CERTAIN SOCIAL ISSUES, SPECIFICALLY AROUND MISS ONGIES PARTICULAR COMMENTS WE’VE SEEN FROM SOME OF THE CANDIDATES SO FAR >> Rosemary: AHEALTHY PARTY, THOUGH, THAT THAT MANY PEOPLE WANT — THIS ISN’T A DIG AT THE NDP, KATHLEEN YOURS IS MUCH FURTHER OFF THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT WANT THIS JOB IF I WAS A CONSERVATIVE I WOULD FIND THAT ENCOURAGING >> OF COURSE MAYBE WE COULD LEND A FEW PEOPLE TO THE NDP >> WE CAN TAKE HALF OF THEIR CANDIDATES AND STILL HAVE AS MANY IN THE RACE >> Rosemary: IT IS A LARGE GROUP I’VE BEEN IMPRESSED SO FAR AT HOW ARTICULATE, HOW WELL SPOKEN, HOW WELL THEY ARE SETTING OUT SUBSTANTIVE POLICY POSITIONS ROWS RESALL OF THEM? >> MOST OF THEM, YEAH I WATCHED THE SECOND DEBATE IN PERSON IN OTTAWAMENT ALL OF THE CANDIDATES HAVE PUT A LOT OF THOUGHT INTO THEIR POSITIONS THEY’RE COMING OUT WITH SOME REALLY INTERESTING POLICY PROPOSALS, AND THEY’RE GETTING GREAT REACTION FROM PARTY MEMBERS WHEN THEY LAY THOSE OUT THAT SAID, I THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE THE POINT AT WHICH THE FIELD STARTS TO BE THINNED OR NARROWED A LITTLE BIT I THINK THAT’S WHAT WE’LL WATCH FOR TONIGHT WHO IS GOING TO EMERGE AS A FRONTRUNNER, AS A LEADER I THINK BILINGUALISM ISSUE THAT LINDSAY MENTIONED WILL CERTAINLY BE PART OF THAT BUT I ALSO THINK IT WILL BECOME MORE APPARENT WHICH CANDIDATES WILL REALLY BE SORT OF SEPARATING THEMSELVES FROM THE PACK SO TO SPEAK THIS FORMAT IS REALLY UNWIELDY AND IT CAN’T CONTINUE MUCH LONGER, I DON’T THINK W THIS MANY >> Rosemary: IT REMINDS YOU OF THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES WHEN THEY HAD ALL THOSE PEOPLE ON THE STAGE T BECAME HARD >> THERE WERE 18 CANDIDATES IN THE REPUBLICAN RACE BUT THEY NEVER HAD MORE THAN 11 ON ANY ONE STAGE SO THIS IS ACTUALLY BIGGER THAN THAT SO THE BILINGUALISM TO ME IS THE THING TO WATCH IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT WHILE IT’S NOT NECESSARILY KEY TO INNING WINNING A FEDERAL ELECTION, WE’VE SEEN THAT WHEN THE CONSERVATIVES WON IN 2011, THEY ONLY HAD FIVE SEATS IN QUEBEC, BUT IT IS KEY FOR WINNING THE CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP RACE BECAUSE EVERY RIDING IN QUEBEC, EVERY RIDING IN NEW BRUNSWICK, IN EASTERN ONTARIO, IS AS IMPORTANT AS A RIDING IN ALBERTA OR IN SASKATCHEWAN >> Rosemary: COUPLE THINGS PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW IS THERE IS NO TRANSLATION YOU’LL HAVE TRANSLATION AT HOME BUT FOR THE CANDIDATES THERE, THERE’S NO SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION YOU EITHER UNDERSTAND IT OR YOU DON’T, WHICH I THINK IS A GOOD WAY TO WEED PEOPLE OUT YOU CAN CHOOSE WHAT LANGUAGE YOU WANT TO RESPOND IN AS WELL IF YOU SEE PEOPLE SAY, READ THEIR OPENING STATEMENT IN FRENCH AND NEVER GO BACK TO IT, THAT WILL BE A SIGN THE MODERATOR IS MONICA BARLEY, SHE’LL BE TAKING THE STAGE SHORTLY SHE WAS ALSO A CANDIDATE FOR THE LEADERSHIP OF THE PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE PEAT OF NEW BRUNSWICK I’LL GO BACK TO KATHLEEN >> WE HAVEN’T MENTIONED ENERGY SINCE THE LAST DEBATE WE HAD THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF KINDER >> Rosemary: I THOUGHT YOU MEANT PERSONAL ENERGY YOU MEAN ACTUAL ENERGY >> THAT WILL BE INTERESTING WE COULD TALK ABOUT THAT FOR AWHILE WILL ANDREW SAXTON BRING HIS ENERGY TUNE IN IN A FEW MINUTES AND WE’LL FIND OUT VERY KIND MAN BUT NO, IT ACTUALLY WAS DEEPAK IN THE LAST DEBATE, IN SASKATCHEWAN, WHO WAS HILARIOUS HE WAS A COMEDY FACTOR I PERSONALLY AM JUST WATCHING FOR DEEPAK REALLY IN TERMS OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE PIPELINES AND BECAUSE NEW BRUNSWICK IS THINKING SO MUCH ABOUT ENERGY EAST AS WELL AND THE JOBS THAT ARE DEPENDENT IN THAT REGION, SO THAT WILL BE INTERESTING TO WATCH WHERE THE CANDIDATES FALL OUT ON THAT ISSUE >> Rosemary: THE MODERATOR IS TALKING I’M GOING TO WAIT UNTIL SOME PEOPLE STARTING HITTING THE STAGE 14 PEOPLE HAVE TO GET ON THE STAGE THAT’S A LOT OF PEOPLE THE PIPELINE THING COULD COME UP I,I GUESS, MORE, ALTHOUGH — I DON’T KNOW IN WHAT CONTEXT YOU RAISE IT IF YOU’RE A CANDIDATE RACHEL? IT’S A BIT TRICKY >> WHAT’S INTERESTING IS WHERE THE CANDIDATES AGREE ON POLICY AND WHERE THEY DISAGREE ON PIPELINES THERE IS GOING TO BE LARGELY AGREEMENT ACROSS THE BOARD WHAT WILL BE MORE INTERESTING IS ON ISSUES WE’VE TOUCHED ON LIKE IMMIGRATION PERHAPS, SOME OF THE SOCIAL ISSUES, WHERE THERE IS SOME DISAGREEMENT AND DIFFERENTIAL BETWEEN CANDIDATES ON ECONOMIC ISSUES, THERE IS ALIGNMENT FOR SURE, BUT CANDIDATES LIKE MAXIME BERNIER, MICHAEL CHONG, AND OTHERS HAVE REALLY PUT FORWARD SOME, I WOULD SAY, AMBITIOUS PROPOSALS ON THE ECONOMIC FRONT WE’LL SEE IF THEY TRY AND RAISE THOSE AND TRY AND DIFFERENTIATE THEMSELVES THAT WAY >> THEY’RE ALL PLAYING TO A LOCAL AND REGIONAL AUDIENCE LIKE IN SASKATCHEWAN AND PLAYED THE AGRICULTURAL ISSUES THAT WERE IMPORTANT THERE RIGHT NOW IN MONCTON THEY WERE PLAYING TO THOSE REGIONAL AND EASTERN ISSUES AND BRINGING JOBS AND HOW THEY APPROACH THAT WILL BE A PART OF IT [Please Stand By] >> WHEN’S THE NEXT TIME THEY HAVE TO PONY UP SOME CASH?

HARPER DID NOT LEAVE AS AN UNPOPULAR LEADER HE DID NOT WIN THE LAST ELECTION BUT HE DID NOT LEAVE AS AN UNPOPULAR LEADER BUT I DO THINK IT’S PROBABLY WISE FOR THEM TO START KIND OF BITING BACK AT EACH OTHER A LITTLE BIT MORE AND TRYING TO SEPARATE THEMSELVES THEY DID IT A LITTLE BIT YOU KNOW, PUSHING BACK ON TROST AND LEE CHONG’S CERTAIN POLICIES THEY SHOULD TRY TO DO THAT A BIT MORE >> Rosemary: EXCELLENT SEGUE THE BERNIER-LEITCH CLIP ONLY ONE CHANCE TO REBUT FEW PEOPLE USED IT EFFECTIVELY BERNIER DID AND HE WENT AFTER KELLIE LEITCH SORT OF COMPARING HER TO TRUMP TAKE A LISTEN >> SHE ALWAYS SAID THAT IN THE CAMPAIGN THAT WE MUST LOOK AT OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM IN CANADA AND AS YOU KNOW, WE’RE NOT LIKE IN U.S WE DON’T HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM IN THE U.S. WITH ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS I DON’T KNOW WHY MS. LEITCH IS PLAYING KIND OF A VERSION OF DONALD TRUMP IN CANADA IT IS NOT THE SAME THING I THINK WE ARE OPENING TO IMMIGRATION AND WE DON’T NEED THIS KARAOKE VERSION OF DONALD TRUMP >> Rosemary: OBVIOUSLY THAT WAS A LINE HE HAD AT THE READY HE TWEETED IT LATER BUT IT WAS PRETTY EFFECTIVE LINE I DON’T KNOW IF HER SUPPORT AND HIS SUPPORT WOULD BE THE SAME ANYWAY BUT HE’S OBVIOUSLY FEELING THAT SHE IS A REAL HORSE IN THIS RACE AND HE NEEDS TO GO AFTER HER A LITTLE BIT >> IT WAS INTERESTING BECAUSE BERNIER WENT AFTER KELLIE LEITCH, MICHAEL CHONG DID, AND ALSO DEEPAK OBHRAI SORT OF MENTION IT HAD AS WELL SO THE CANDIDATES DO SEE HER AS SOMEONE THAT THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY’RE DIFFERENT YATING THEMSELVES FROM LEITCH FOR THE REBUTTAL SHE USED AT THE END, PROBABLY GOOD USE FOR HER BECAUSE IT WAS THE LAST THING PEOPLE HEARD UP TO THAT POINT IN THE DEBATE SHE WAS NOT REALLY ALL THAT PRESENT AND SHE WAS MOSTLY TALKING ABOUT THE CABINET, GOVERNMENT SPENDING IT WASN’T THE KIND OF STUFF THAT HAD CAPTURED SOME ATTENTION IN THE PAST SO IN THE END, SHE MIGHT HAVE USED THAT BETTER THAN BERNIER DID WHO DID IT EARLIER ON >> Rosemary: WHAT DO YOU THINK? >> GOOD FOR HIM FOR TRYING TO SORT OF DIFFERENTIATE HIMSELF FROM KELLIE I THINK THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT CANDIDATES NEED TO DO KELLIE WAS VERY STRT ABOUT HOW SHE BUILT SAME THING AT THE END — STRATEGIC THAT’S WHAT MEMBERS WILL NEED TO SEE IS CANDIDATES SAYING, I DISAGREE WITH THE OTHER CANDIDATES ON THIS ISSUE AND THIS IS WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO ME THIS IS WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT THE ISSUE >> Rosemary: THE PROBLEM IS IS THAT THE ONLY DIFFERENTIATION WE REALLY SEE IS THAT ISSUE THAT SHE HAS MADE AN ISSUE THAT WASN’T AN ISSUE BEFORE RIGHT? WHETHER IT WAS — LIKE, AS CATHERINE SAID EVERYONE WANTS MORE JOBS EVERYONE — IT’S HARD >> SO THERE’S THIS VERY GENTLE APPROACH TO DEALING WITH OTHER CANDIDATES

THERE’S THIS KIND OF CONSENSUS VIEW ON ECONOMIC ISSUES AND THERE’S NO CANDIDATE SAYING, I AM DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER CANDIDATES AND THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD SUPPORT ME LIKE, THIS IS WHY I AM THE PERSON TO REPLACE JUSTIN TRUDEAU IN 2019 I THINK THAT’S GOING TO BE INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT FOR CANDIDATES TO REALLY OUTLINE THAT CLEARLY >> Rosemary: SOMEONE ON TWITTER SAYS YOU GET FINED IF YOU DON’T SHOW UP FOR ALL DEBATES I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S TRUE THE IDEA WOULD NOT BE AS GOOD GO AHEAD ON THE BERNIER >> WELL, I WOULD JUST SAY A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT I THINK THAT, YOU KNOW, FOR KELLIE, SHE ALSO TOOK ON BERNIER SHE CRITICIZED HIM AROUND THE PRIVATIZATION THING AND I GUESS THE THING IN POLITICS, THE WORST THING IN POLITICS IS BEING IGNORED LIKE, YOU WANT THEM TALKING ABOUT YOU EVEN IF IT’S IN A BAD WAY THAT MAY MAKE ME VERY CYNICAL BUT IT IS TRUE AND BY HER TAKING ON BERNIER, AS MANY TOOK ON KELLIE, IT SIGNIFIES HE ALSO IS THE GUY TO TAKE DOWN SHE ATTACKED HIM ON HIS NOTION OF PRIVATIZING EVERYTHING AND TOTALLY WITHDRAWING IN TERMS OF THE GOVERNMENT AND I THINK THAT HIS FUND RAISING LEAD, HIS SUPPORT FROM PEOPLE LIKE TONY CLEMENT HAS REALLY PUT HIM IN THE FRONT ROLE >> BERNIER HAS HAD A LOT OF VERY STRONG POLICIES AND I THINK HE’S BEEN CONSISTENT AT PUTTING OUT IDEAS ABOUT HOW EXACTLY HE WANTS TO SHAPE NOT ONLY PARTY BUT THE COUNTRY THAT’S BEEN EFFECTIVE AND CERTAINLY PROBABLY IN A MORE TANGIBLE WAY THAN KELLIE LEITCH SHE’S SITTING HERE TALKING ABOUT MACE AND PEPPER SPRAY >> Rosemary: THAT WAS HER THIRD BIG IDEA >> IF YOU WANT TO GET ELECTED RUNNING ON THAT PLATFORM, THE LIBERALS WILL BE THRILLED WITH IT >> Rosemary: OH, YEAH >> IT’S NOT HELPFUL TO THE DEBATE THAT WHAT SHE DOES SEEM TO BE PUTTING OUT SOME VERY DIVISIVE IDEAS AND I THINK IT’S A DESPERATE MEDIA GRAB I THINK SHE’S TRYING TO GRAB HEADLINES AND KIND OF CREATE A FRONT-RUNNER PERSONA FOR HERSELF, WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT DONALD TRUMP DID IN THE LAST ELECTION >> Rosemary: I DON’T KNOW HOW DESPERATE IT IS, BECAUSE IT’S WORKING IT WOULD BE DESPERATE IF IT WAS LAST IN THE PACK THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT SUPPORT IT LET ME DO ONE LAST CLIP OF DEEPAK OBHRAI, THE SHORTER ONE LET’S PLAY THAT BECAUSE DEEPAK OBHRAI THE ONLY VISIBLE MINORITY ON THE STAGE, NOT GREAT FRENCH I THINK PROBABLY NOT LIKELY TO WIN BUT WHO KNOWS THINGS COULD TURN HERE’S A LITTLE TASTE OF DEEPAK OBHRAI >> Voice of Translator: A STRONG ECONOMY EQUALS JOBS DEEPAK OBHRAI EQUALS JOBS >> YOU’RE RIGHT, DEEPAK WE NEED MORE >> Rosemary: PEOPLE THAT HAD TO WATCH THIS DEBATE FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF AND I HOPE YOU ALL DID AT HOME TOO BY HE WAS A LOVELY MOMENT OF LEVITY >> HE OPENED THE SASKATOON DEBATE BY SAYING HE WAS A NOBODY CANDIDATE HE’S BEEN THE COMIC RELIEF I’M SURE HE WOULD LIKE TO BE MORE THAN THE COMIC RELIEF HE CERTAINLY HAS LINED THE DEBATE SO FAR >> BETWEEN HIM AND THE PROPS >> Rosemary: THE PROPS >> YEAH >> Rosemary: IS HE A REAL CANDIDATE OR IS THIS ABOUT POSITION SNG >> EASY BEEN GOING AFTER BERNIER THAT’S THE INDICATION THAT HE WANTS TO GO AFTER THAT QUEBEC VOTE BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY FUNNY AND A LOT OF PEOPLE MENTION THIS HAD ON TWITTER HOLDING UP A ROD YOU WANT TO BE MORE INTERESTING THAN THE ROD AND EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT THAT’S — YOU DON’T WANT — — >> Rosemary: I DON’T THINK I HAVE TIME TO PLAY THAT CLIP >> NUCLEAR IS A SAFE AND RELIABLE ENERGY THAT’S HOW WE’RE GOING TO REDUCE BILLS FOR SMALL ASK MEDIUM BUSINESSES THAT’S ALSO HOW WE ARE GOING TO REINVEST IN OUR CANADIAN KNOWLEDGE I AM PROUD TO BE AN ENGINEER >> Rosemary: WHEN HE PULLED THAT OUT, EVERYONE — WE ALL WENT OH >> PROPS HERE? >> DIRTY >> Rosemary: I’M NOT SURE WHAT THE POINT IS THERE HE WAS CLEARLY GOING AFTER BERNIER SO NEXT ONE IS ON THE 17TH DO YOU THINK THEY’LL ALL BE THERE? >> NO >> Rosemary: NO, I DON’T >> I THINK YOU’LL SEE ABOUT A 25% REDUCTION >> I THINK SO >> Rosemary: TO SAY NOTHING — >> 75% IS STILL THREE OR FOUR I’M NOT BEING THAT UNREALISTIC >> Rosemary: TO SAY NOTHING OF IF KEVIN O’LEARY GETS IN THE RACE >> THAT 50,000 DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED BY THE END OF THE YEAR >> MAYBE 25% IS NOT UNREALISTIC >> I THINK IN QUEBEC THERE’S A NUMBER SEVEN IN QUEBEC >> Rosemary: THANK YOU ALL I WAS GLAD YOU WERE HERE TO KEEP ME COMPANY DURING ALL OF THAT ERIC GRENIER, RACHEL OCCUR RAN, KATHLEEN MONK AND LINDSAY DOYLE THAT ENDS OUR SPECIAL COVERAGE OF THE SECOND CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP DEBATE REMEMBER, FOURTEEN CANDIDATES WE’LL SEE HOW MANY WE HAVE BY THE TIME WE GET TO THE 17TH OF JANUARY
