We’re ready to host Maclean’s National Leaders Debate, August 6 at 8 p.m. ET. And we know that we’re ready because of our years of comprehensive coverage from Parliament Hill since the last election, full of smart, incisive reads from our Ottawa bureau and our newsroom at large. We have long interviews with our parties’ leaders; we have deep dives on national issues; we have insight into the thinking that goes behind the decisions that affect all Canadians.
