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
Address: 444 Front Street West, Toronto, ON M5V 2S9
Phone: 1-416-585-5000

The Munk Debates
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. has a petition to sign asking all leaders to participate.

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

    When I want to know what’s really going on in our nation’s parliament, I go to Elizabeth May. Without her it’s all smoke and mirrors. Thank you Elizabeth May!

    If the federal NDP and/or the Liberal parties are going to properly discuss the environment then they must support the participation of the leader of the Green party in all scheduled debates.

    To exclude Elizabeth May and her sincere ability to relate to current Canadian values exposes a weakness that has been all too evident in the ongoing actions of the Federal Conservative party.

    Elizabeth’s presence in all of the debates is absolutely essential to ensure that critical issues of genuine concern to every Canadian are addressed by all party leaders.

    Elizabeth May MUST be included in all debates! This is unquestionable and should be ameliorated now.

    Yes, you definitely need to be included in all candidate debates. Canadians are tired of the way our country is being run. The majority of Canadians care about our environmental impact in the world and climate change. We want a government that we can feel proud of. We want a government that will take responsibility through policy and be among the global leaders for environmental protection. Instead our reputation is tarnished by our lack of involvement and commitment. Canadians need to hear Elizabeth, be inspired to vote and feel that there is hope for the future of Canada and for the environment. We need to have a leader who is willing to work with other global leaders to shift the impact of Global warming and environmental catastrophe.

    To have Elizabeth May in the debates would help all the voters, as she knows what is true, and will bring it to our attention, in a way we can understand

    Of course Elizabeth should be in the debate. She’s earned it, Canadians want it. Anything less is an obvious manipulation of democracy.
