The leaders of Saskatchewan’s two largest political parties took part in the only televised debate of the election campaign on Wednesday night.
A panelist of journalists – Global’s Allison Bamford, CBC’s Adam Hunter, Postmedia’s Murray Mandryk and Vanier Scholar Merelda Fiddler – asked the party leaders questions centred on COVID-19, the economy, health care and Indigenous issues.

Each leader had 45 seconds to answer, followed by three-minutes of open debate.
The live debate was held at the Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan with no live audience because of the pandemic. Leaders, panelists and the moderator were all separated by a two-metre distance.
The invitation to the debate was based on the criteria determined by the Consortium, which includes CTV, Global, and CBC, in which a political party needs to have representation in the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan.
