How to Spice up the 2011 Leaders Debate

Tonight is the English language candidates debate of Election 2011, only the 4th election in 7 years. There does not appear to be a great deal of public interest due to a hazy reason for the election to be called in the first place. So here are a few suggestions that might get a wider viewing audience:

  • Have Shania Twain sing the national anthem.

  • Debate topic: What was the purpose, again, of calling this election?

  • Debate topic: Should we help Quebec seperate from Canada?

  • Go live to the Weather Network for 10 mins to get a cross-Canada temperature update.

  • Debate discussion: Other ways we could have wasted $300 million.

  • Have the Canadian Idol judges rate the party leaders as they imitate and sing, Bob Dylan songs half way through the debate.

  • Debate topic: What can Canadians do to help those less fortunate oil and gas companies, in this time of world crisis.. perhaps set up food banks, or have celebrities host pledge drives.. something must be done!

  • Call back the judges for the all Canadian "Ski-doo suit" contest.

  • Debate topic: What's the best source of Omega-3 oil? Seals or salmon?

  • Guest appearance by Charlie Sheen where he burns his shirt or has his girlfriends kiss each other, or whatever the man thinks will be a little outrageous.

  • Final comments by the Liberal, Conservative and NDP (and tell the Bloc's Gilles Duceppe that there is not enough time left for his comments).. just to irk him
  • No comments:
