The four Conservative leadership contenders squared off in the last official debate of the race Thursday with the candidates focusing their attacks not on each other but on the common foe: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party.

While Wednesday night's French debate included much sniping between the two perceived frontrunners, Erin O'Toole and Peter MacKay, in the English debate the candidates called for unity among conservatives to take on Trudeau.

MacKay and O'Toole avoided some of the personal slurs that peppered the French exchange — on Wednesday, O'Toole called MacKay a "liar," for example, while MacKay said O'Toole is an "angry man" — and focused instead on how their policies will better Canada.
