Every April members of The Leacock Foundation and guests enjoy an evening of wit and humour in support of the Foundation’s signature academic and leadership programs for underserved youth in Toronto.
For many years the Leacock Debate has relied on the talent of the legal community for its debaters. A number of prominent lawyers have volunteered their time to serve as debaters which have been the key to the event’s success.
This year’s debate will be moderated by the Honourable Beverley McLachlin and the topic is:
Be it Resolved it’s Time for Men to Return to their Rightful Place
- Jennifer Keesmaat
- Alex Johnston
- Cathal Kelly, and
- Eric Peterson
