Let the games begin: Rick Mercer, who is arguably more popular than any of the political party leaders, has offered to serve as producer of a debate between Stephen Harper and Michael Ignatieff.
He proposes that it take place at Massey Hall in Toronto and that $50,000 will go to charities on both sides. Hard to see a downside in that.
Mercer, let's not forget, amassed enough signatures to change Stockwell Day's name to Doris Day in the 2000 election campaign. So let's see where this one goes. If you leave comments here, I'll forward them to Rick and both parties.
