Trudeau is dominating tonight's debate with great respect for Ms. Paul. Erin O'toole doesn't belong there, Jagmeet Singh needs a nap, the bloc guy can't remember where he parked his car.— Clay Thompson (@harryt59_harry) September 9, 2021
I think Paul has been doing pretty well, connecting and appealing. It's a reminder that the Greens might have had a really consequential impact on this election if they hadn't decided to burn their own barn down right before harvest #Elxn44— Scott Reid (@_scottreid) September 9, 2021

The vitriol is jarring - Singh, in particular, appears to have such a personal dislike for Trudeau, even though in terms of policy directions I think there should be much that Liberals and NDP would be able to agree on.

O'Toole and Singh's standard response when they can't answer simple questions, is to respond with, " Why are we having an election?" Trudeau is the clear winner in tonight's debate! #VoteLiberal pic.twitter.com/TmttKlAUST— KNugent4118🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦 (@knugent4118) September 9, 2021
Anybody paying attention has seen Singh and the NDP work against the Liberals regardless of policy. Ask the disabled, who could have used some help but, both the Cons & NDP votes AGAINST that support. #VoteLiberal— KCR 🐕🐕🐕🥂😷🇨🇦 (@kimcreynolds1) September 8, 2021
I was surprised at the lack of attention paid to Indigenous issues, except for glancing comments about boil-water advisories and Indigenous languages.
The reason we have an election is clear this debate.— Dr. Matthew S. Johnston (@mattjohnstonca) September 9, 2021
No party wants to work with the liberal party in a minority government anymore.@JustinTrudeau is the only person telling us his true record and plan.

1st question is on Indigenous sovereignty & languages (making them official) all party leaders agree(even blanchet) but O'Toole doesnt.— kris meloche (@krismeloche) September 9, 2021
No official language designation, only services, he also skated around sovereignty out right.
Clearly O’Toole doesn’t know that Ojibwa is different than Mohawk. 🤦🏻♀️— Ishat Reza 🇵🇸 (@IshatReza) September 9, 2021
Though more than 100 boil-water advisories have been lifted under the Liberal government, there are still 32 communities with boil-water advisories in place, and COVID limited the amount of work that could be done in 2020
In fairness to Trudeau, he introduced the Indigenous— Justin Ling (@Justin_Ling) September 9, 2021
Languages Act. His platform promises to continue working on it and funding it.
I try to explain to ppl the complexity of building things in northern 🇨🇦 but most 🇨🇦 are fucking clueless about life in the North. And by North I’m not talking Barrie https://t.co/gGV72yya4B— JimG (@jgib44) September 9, 2021
How can Erin O’Toole complain about long-term boil-water advisories when his party did absolutely nothing when in power - and, in fact, were content to uphold a 2% spending cap, which the current government removed upon being elected? #cdnpoli #Elxn44— Diane Marie (@DianeMariePosts) September 9, 2021
At the halfway point of the French language debate, @JustinTrudeau is galloping three lengths ahead and a limping @erinotoole fading in fourth. The opposition needed to draw blood on the Liberal leader. So far, not even a bruise.— Don Martin (@DonMartinCTV) September 9, 2021
The restaurant coupon idea that the CPC announced earlier today isn't going to create any voting momentum either:

I keep thinking about this and how, under List PR, the PPC could easily hold the balance of power. And how, when we pointed this out back when electoral reform was promised federally, we were castigated for warning about this very really possibility https://t.co/w7qyEyEDdg— Melanee Thomas (@MelaneeLThomas) September 7, 2021
