Rogers has not shown either of the debates they covered live which is really disappointing.

The Chamber of Commerce debate was initially pre-empted for hockey. On Tuesday September 20 when they could have shown the Social Justice Debate live they chose to rerun the Chamber of Commerce debate(?)

Fortunately CFRU 93.3fm will be broadcasting the university campaign debate live on September 28 from 4.30 p.m. - 6.30 p.m.

Good to see that there is at least one media organisation in town taking their role seriously.
