'Decades overdue': Equality groups call for election debate on women's rights

Jonathan Forani, CTV News

NDP and Green Party leaders committed Wednesday to a debate on women’s issues ahead of the 2019 election.

Up For Debate, a coalition of women’s rights groups, had planned a similar debate in 2015, but cancelled when Conservative and NDP leaders Stephen Harper and Thomas Mulcair said they wouldn’t participate. Then-NDP Leader Mulcair said at the time he wouldn’t take part in any debate that the then-prime minister was not participating in, after initially agreeing to do the debate.
