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:

Globe & Mail
Email: dwalmsley@globeandmail.com 
Address: 444 Front Street West, Toronto, ON M5V 2S9
Phone: 1-416-585-5000

The Munk Debates
Email: rudyard@munkdebates.com  
Address: The Munk Debates c/o The Aurea Foundation, The Gate House, Massey College, 4 Devonshire Place, Toronto, ON M5S 2E1

 

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. Change.org has a petition to sign asking all leaders to participate.

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

    Elizabeth May was an intelligent and courageous debater in the first all-party debate on Aug.6. In a democratic Canada and with May as an official party leader, it’s imperative that she be included in all election debates. Elizabeth May is being unfairly excluded, denying Canadian voters a full range of national viewpoints.

    I believe that the rules should accommodate any leader of a recognized political party that would like to debate about how our country should be run.
