Trudeau says don't exclude any candidates
Justin Trudeau won't exclude others from debate
Trudeau says "No." He refuses to rule out participation by the other seven candidates.
The gentleman astronaut says he's ready for a debate between Trudeau and himself, anywhere, anytime.
His argument: a one-on-one debate would give liberal members and sympathizers a chance to better understand and compare the two men.
Trudeau replied on his blog that he wasn't going to exclude any of the other seven candidatesfrom taking part a debate: "I respect all the candidates in the leadership race. We will be in Halifax, Marc."
Trudeau added that he believes there will a chance for one-on-one exchange in Halifax on Saturday.
Garneau said Monday morning: "If he is actually qualified to become leader, he should have the courage of his convictions and display them in a face to face debate with me."
For three weeks Garneau has continually attacked Trudeau's political qualities. The vote is April 14.
