The first debate featuring Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau revealed a lot of interesting dynamics. It was clear that the three English-speaking leaders were trying to minimize the impact that Yves-Francois Blanchet and the Bloc could have for Quebecois in Ottawa.

Meanwhile, Trudeau was quite neutral all night save for his impassioned defence of SNC-Lavalin and the jobs he was protecting.
