Include Elizabeth May in the 2015 Leaders' Debates!

Leaders' debates that exclude Elizabeth are missing an important voice for democracy. Over 80% of Canadians in a recent EKOS poll said they want Elizabeth included. Add your voice to protest!

Canadians want and deserve to hear the Green Party Leader Elizabeth challenge the other federal leaders in the Globe and Mail, Munk, and TVA debates, too.  Globe and Mail and Munk Debates need to hear from Canadians that Elizabeth is needed. Sign our petition below, sign the Green Party of Canada petition too, and write or email:

Adding insult to injury, Mulcair's refusal to participate in the televised National Broadcasters’ debates is a clear attempt to shut Elizabeth May out. These are the debates that will be seen by at least 14 million Canadians from coast to coast to coast. has a petition to sign asking all leaders to participate.

 "Democracy is worth fighting for" (Elizabeth May, Green Party Leader).

    The national [parties have always taken part in the debates. By shutting out the Green party from the debates you are not allowing a very important voice to be silenced. In a Democracy , this is not the way it should be. The voters need to hear from all their national leaders so that they can make informed decisions on election day. what is happening to Canada? It is not a dictatorship, it is a democracy so please allow all the voices of our national leaders to be heard in the debates.

    Hosts of “national” debates are doing Canada a real disservice if they exclude Elizabeth May and her knowledge, experience and skill in seeking collaborative solutions to all areas of debate. She has more than qualified for the right to represent the many citizens who support her vision for Canada.

    Democracy depends on an informed electorate. Include all party leaders in every debate.

    Any so-called debate that doesn’t include Elizabeth May would be a sham and an attack on Canadian democracy. It would narrow rather than broaden the perspective of Canadian voters.

    Everytime EM participates in a televised debate more people want to vote for her. Of course the others don’t want her there…. Cowards!
