Cape and Team Canada win world debating championship

Isaac Cape 2020 and Team Canada won the World Schools' Debating Championship on Wednesday, August 4, 2021. The tournament was a week-long affair with the best high-school debaters in the world competing for the title of World Champions. This year, it was held online with Macau, China as the host city.
The final came down to Canada vs. Hong Kong in an incredible debate: In the instance where a revolution has overthrown a previous system, This House Prefers technocratic governments to democratic governments with Canada as the Proposition.
“The team won on an 8-1 decision by the judges,” says Selwyn House Senior Debating Coach Jonathan Bracewell. “Congratulations to an amazing team for an amazing result.” 
“The other two Selwyn House alumni debaters were Gabriel Di Bert 2019 and Karl Valentini 2014, Mr. Bracewell adds. “Both of them made the development team, but didn’t make the competition team, so they never actually competed in WSDC.” 
Isaac is the first Selwyn debater to compete in the Championship.
