    Use of evidence: 5.3 4.2
    Delivery skill: 5.3 4.2
    Coherence of arguments: 6 4.1
    Responsiveness to opponent: 6 3.6
    Identification of key points: 4.6 4.2
    Comments: You do a good job of responding to your opponent's arguments. It was also very good that you continued to include evidence throughout your speeches, not just the first one. You do a good job of highlighting some key problems with the plan. You should make sure to not only answer his responses but also make an argument for the status quo.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Justin Oh

    Reason for Decision:

    There was not a compelling argument for why I should value sovereignty over human rights, and the proposition won the argument that reforms are critical to certain human rights.
