A Federal Court judge says Rebel Media and the True North Centre for Public Policy have established that they would suffer "irreparable harm" if denied access to the English-language leaders' debate taking place in Gatineau, Que., tonight and the French-language debate later this week.

Justice Russel Zinn says the reasons for his ruling will be released at a later date.

The two organizations turned to the court after learning their representatives had been denied access to the debate on grounds that they engaged in advocacy.
