HALIFAX, NS – Progressive Conservative leader Jamie Baillie says he welcomes Premier Dexter’s invitation for several debates over the course of the Nova Scotia election campaign.

Today, when announcing the election date, the Premier said he looked forward to engaging in several debates with the other party leaders over the course of the campaign.

“Nova Scotians deserve to hear from the party leaders as much as possible during the campaign,” he said. “I’m prepared to debate Darrell Dexter and Stephen McNeil anywhere, anytime.”

Baillie said it will be hard for Nova Scotians to tell the difference between Stephen McNeil and Darrell Dexter in the debates because their policies are so alike.

Baillie also called on Liberal leader Stephen McNeil to commit to taking part in multiple debates.
