The Colgate Open 2014: Final Round

On the weekend of March 29-30, the Colgate Debate Society hosted the fifth annual Colgate Open. After five preliminary rounds, followed by competitive quarter and semi final rounds, four teams competed in the final. The teams of Hybrid CC (opening government), Vermont Hybrid SH (opening opposition), Cambridge Broadly Understood (closing government), and McGill KT (closing opposition) debated the motion, “This House Believes that secular governments should actively censor those sections of religious text that either constitute hate speech or propagate negative attitudes to other religious/ethnic groups.” Above is the video of the round. Hybrid CC,  AJ Cormier and Simon Cameron from Carelton University won the round on a unanimous decision. The round was judged by the panel of Anser Aftab, Sarah Balakrishnan, Buzz Klinger, Melissa Haller ’16, and Luke Luttmann ’15.
