"I said what I wanted to say and I think it had the main effect that I wanted to have, which is to give people on the eve of the American midterm, give those who see what's happening encouragement and hope."

Frum, a senior editor at The Atlantic magazine, debated Bannon, the former executive chairman of right-wing website Breitbart News, about the role of populism in politics as part of the Munk Debates in Toronto on Friday.

The event sparked a protest outside the Roy Thomson Hall venue, largely centred around opposition to the inclusion of Bannon, who helped Donald Trump win the 2016 U.S. presidential election and served as White House chief strategist for eight months until August 2017.
