Those looking for fireworks during Winnipeg Centre debate left disappointed

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 5/10/2015 (1348 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Winnipeg Centre candidates were on their best behaviour, meaning no profanities were uttered other than NDP incumbent candidate Pat Martin's accidental "ass" instead of "gas" while discussing climate change at the University of Winnipeg debate on Monday night.

Martin, along with Communist candidate Darrel Rankin, Liberal candidate Robert-Falcon Ouellette and Green candidate Don Woodstock took part in the debate hosted by the U of W Students' Association and the U of W Alumni Association. A UWSA press release said Conservative candidate Allie Szarkiewicz "declined an invitation to participate."

Topics discussed included jobs, resource extraction, climate change, post-secondary education, Bill C-51 and Shoal Lake 40's Freedom Road.

"First of all, my party would stop all subsidies of big oil and big ass, big gas," Martin said, ennuciating 'gas' the second time in response to a question about what the parties would do regarding development of oil sands and oil extraction.

ASHLEY PREST / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS

In Winnipeg Centre, NDP candidate Pat Martin, Communist candidate Darrel Rankin, Liberal candidate Robert-Falcon Ouellette and Green candidate Don Woodstock took part in a debate hosted by the University of Winnipeg Students' Association Monday.

Topics discussed included jobs, resource extraction, climate change, post-secondary education, Bill C-51 and Shoal Lake 40's Freedom Road.

"First of all, my party would stop all subsidies of big oil and big ass, big gas," Martin said, ennuciating 'gas' the second time in response to a question about what the parties would do regarding development of oil sands and oil extraction.

The crowd erupted with laughter but those came to see Martin lose his cool left disappointed as he remained collected throughout the evening.

But the same can't be said for the crowd, which had hecklers often shouting and interrupting the candidates while moderator Michael Welch of CKUW had to speak to them several times to maintain decorum.
