Unlike the previous two #CivilDebates, Civil Debates 3: Idle No More will be adopting a 5-step debate model:

1. 5 minutes from each of the speakers responding to the debate resolution.

2. Up to 5 minutes each for each of the speakers to respond to any of the ideas put forward by the other speakers.

3. Reading of 21 Provocative Statements. 7 each provided by by the speakers, but not-attributed.

4. Opportunity for audience members to respond to one of the statements for two minutes. Debaters may also participate.
