For a party leader ostensibly dedicated to splitting Canada, Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe has received quite positive reviews for his performances in the English and French debates:

Stephen Taylor: As the leader of a french-first-and-last separatist party from Quebec, Gilles Duceppe did not have much to gain or lose during the debate and the Bloc leader appeared to be the candidate most genuinely at ease... bringing realism against rhetoric.

John Ivison: Duceppe asks the killer question on Iraq. Would you advocate it again? Harper admits an error. I think a pig just flew over the National Arts Centre.

Don Martin: That's because that old master of these debates, the Bloc's Gilles Duceppe, adequately defended his party's right to exist in a federal state long after his party was supposed to fold its tent and retreat to a semi-sovereigntist state.

With 11 previous leaders debates under his belt, more than all the other leaders combined, Duceppe even has previous experience withthe five-person format, as see in the above photo.
