Mike Duffy v. Elizabeth May.

According to a rough transcript sent this way—the full video does not appear to be on CTV’s website—Duffy was setting up a piece on Peter MacKay and Elizabeth May debating at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. At the debate, May said something about renegotiating NAFTA. Duffy described her statements as “pretty bizarre” and “off the wall” and “bizarre.” He then apparently asked MacKay, “How do you debate someone who is never going to be in power and can promise the world and never have to back it up? I mean doesn’t it put one at a disadvantage.”

That seems to have led to this.
