April 3, 2016 Ontario Inter-Collegiate Chinese Debate Alliance

In 2015/16, HKUAAO continues to be the scholarship sponsor of Ontario Inter-Collegiate Chinese Debate Alliance (OCDA), aiming to promote the use of Chinese (Cantonese) language in debates among Ontario university students.

This was OCDA’s 25th annual dinner and awarding ceremony. There were 14 teams from five Universities in Ontario participating and the competition was held from November 2015 to March 2016. Several HKU alumni and other notables in the local Chinese community were in the judge panels to adjudicate and gave valuable comments to the debating teams.

The team, which best delivers its strategy and its members who can demonstrate superb debating skills, is the champion; this year’s winner, the BLUE team from University of Toronto, is no exception. Although not all of the participants can be part of the champion team nor can they all become the best debater of the year, the learning spirit and resolve participants exhibit all these years, however, are certainly admirable.
