B.C. party leaders will take part in at least two debates, one on TV and one on radio, in the run-up to the May 14 provincial election.

CKNW radio is hosting a leaders’ debate at 9 a.m. on Friday, April 26. Invited to take part are B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark, NDP leader Adrian Dix, Green Party leader Jane Sterk and B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins.

A one-hour television debate is set for the following Monday, April 29 at 7 p.m. on Global TV, also featuring the four major party leaders.

Clark said Tuesday she is challenging Dix to a one-on-one televised debate proposed for May 6. Dix said it would be “disrespectful” to voters and other party leaders to exclude them.
