Today, a debate was held by the G11 students. In a recent high school Political Study class, we learned more about the Canadian government. Mr. O'Brien, a teacher, was ready to let us pretend we are Canadian political parties and run a campaign.
On the eve of Canada's new elections, there are six parties that participate in the election: the Conservatives, the Liberals, the Green party, the New Democrats, the Bloc Quebecois, and the People's Party of Canada. Each party is represented by two or three students to argue with each other to prove that the idea of his party is the most correct and that it should be run by its own party.
We debated in English throughout the debate, showing good professionalism. Each representative listened carefully when he or she expounds his or her own point of view, listening carefully when he or she makes his or her statement, looking for an argumentable opportunity. The atmosphere was lively, as two classmates representing the current ruling party in Canada and two from the Conservative Party, another strong rival, repeatedly questioned each other, but each time they responded generously and fought back against the fall of the party, and the remaining parties on the growth path spared no effort to express their party's views. It's also a great argument.
The whole process lasted for 70 minutes, but we felt as if it’s just one second. We still had a lot to say, and that was the end of it, and everyone was ready for a hard fight to prove that their party was the best. When you focus, you can't feel time passing.
After students have experienced the feeling of a party debate, next Tuesday they will also watch Canada's general election live, vote for their own party, and see how intense the real election is.
