A Federal Court judge ordered the Leaders' Debates Commission to permit reporters from Rebel News Network to fully cover this week's two official televised leaders' debates.

The ruling means reporters from Rebel News Network will be accredited to cover Wednesday's French-language and Thursday's English-language contest between the major party leaders.

The ruling came after Rebel News Network was granted an emergency hearing Tuesday after the commission denied 11 of its journalists the credentials needed to cover the event and ask post-debate questions of the leaders.
