Decoding debate body language: Expert breaks down party leaders' non-verbal cues - 2019-10-07
TORONTO -- The six federal election candidates took the stage for the English-language debate in Gatineau, Que., on Monday, and while the message of each candidate was weighed and measured by Canadians, another, more subtle factor was at play – body language.
"Body language is essential," said Tracey Thomson, a body language expert and chief operating officer and co-founder of TRUTHPLANE, a company dedicated to training business leaders how to project confidence and credibility. "If you can control your body language, you can control your story."
Thomson took part in CTV News's live blog during the debate, offering insight into each candidate's body language and delivery of their major talking points.
