The consortium of regional broadcasters that organized tonight’s debate says the event is open to parties running candidates in “all or almost all” of the province’s ridings. The rules ensure Del Duca’s participation after the Liberals were forced to drop a handful of nominees last week and now have candidates running in 122 of 124 ridings.
