Something to talk about: major debating championships held at Carleton University

The Carleton University Debating Society hosted one of the top major student debating tournaments, the CUSID-APDA North American Debating Championships, from January 25 to 27, 2008. More than 70 teams from all across Canada and the United States participated. Carleton is now the fifth school in Canada to host this event. The chief adjudicator for the tournament was English major, Ian Freeman, who was the top speaker at last year’s North American championships. The two co-directors of the tournament were second year journalism student, Blair Stein, and political science and philosophy student, Andrew Lawrence. Both of these students have extensive experience organizing tournaments at all levels.
