Cole Oien and Roubert Dilidili of Western Canada High School have won the Sommet de Débats Canada 150, held in Edmonton on Nov. 18, 2017. Cole Oien also received the Top Speaker prize for the competition, and Western Canada's second advanced all the way to the tournament Semi-Finals. This is the largest French debate competition of its kind held in western Canada.
