OTTAWA—A charitable organization that held a federal election debate on foreign policy four years ago is launching a campaign to pressure party leaders to attend a proposed event during this fall's campaign.

The Munk Debates launched a website today inviting Canadians to write to the Liberals, Conservatives, NDP and Greens to urge their leaders to participate in a debate in Toronto on Oct. 1.

The organization held a foreign policy debate during the 2015 campaign when controversy over traditional network-organized debates meant English-language events were limited to smaller settings.
