Wesley and STC match step for step, LC knocked out

Wesley College and S. Thomas' College registered comfortable wins this week beating a common opposition, Bishop's College. Also interesting to note was that both debates were won by the same margin of points.

S. Thomas' College opposed the motion "THW give racists a platform" in an impromptu debate while Wesley College proposed the motion "THW split up companes that are 'too big to fail'" in a prepared round

The win by STC now means that Ladies' College will have no chance of entering the finals, narrowing the fight down to CIS, STC and WC.
