Two Alberta party leaders from opposite sides of the spectrum are touring Alberta, debating each other, and they have a date set for Red Deer.

Wildrose Party Leader Danielle Smith and NDP Leader Brian Mason have had two spirited debates at the University of Alberta and Medicine Hat College.

“The response to these debates that we’ve gotten from students across Alberta has been tremendous and it’s exciting to see more post-secondary institutions getting on board,” said Smith.

Topics the leaders discuss include revenue and expenses, the economy, public service delivery and the overall political landscape in Alberta.

The two will debate at Red Deer College on Thursday at 7 p.m. in room 2501.

Tickets cost $15 or $10 for members of the Red Deer Political Science Student Society.
