Is it really a debate if people aren't talking about drinking games? For the federal leaders' debate on October 7 Canadians are taking to drinking. The Canada debate drinking game is proving Canadians were drinking a lot during the debate.
When a political debate comes around it's easy to find all sorts of games when it comes to what will happen during the debate and drinking games are always top of mind.
During the Maclean's debate in September, Canadians took to Twitter to help each other get the most out of their debate drinking games.
And this federal leaders' debate also has Canadians sharing their drinking games online.
A lot of Canadians are dealing with the two-hour-long debate full of arguing, snipes and jabs by drinking and creating their own drinking games.

And all of those things happen quite often.

Some people had a different approach to drinking during the debate and that's just drinking. No real game required.
