On Friday night, Mark took to the stage of Toronto's Roy Thomson Hall for the Munk Debate. With Rudyard Griffiths moderating, Steyn and UKIP leader Nigel Farage took on former UN Human Rights Commissioner Louise Arbour and historian Simon Schama over the tide of migrants sweeping Europe.
The motion before the house was:
Be it resolved, give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...
The post debate vote is 55% pro and 45% con. The con side shifted 22% of the vote from the pre-debate results. Con wins.
So Steyn & Farage doubled their vote over the course of the night, which is not a bad result with a tough Trudeaupian crowd.
