Hello everyone, and welcome to the first debate of Election 2019. My name is Jason Kirby and I’ll be moderating the Maclean’s live blog this evening. We’ve got a lot of great stuff planned for you. There’ll be analysis and context of the issues from experts, charts to help you understand the issues and instant reactions from Maclean’s Ottawa bureau reporters.I’m also joined this evening by polling analyst Philippe J. Fournier, the founder of 338Canada. He’ll be sharing maps and detailed polling data for key ridings that could help decide the outcome of the election.
