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

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

    I have often wondered why the party is not represented in the debate. This helps to keep the emerging Green Party out of the public’s eye, and is not a good thing for democracy!

    We need at least ONE Green position expressed in the debate.

    Canadians need to hear Elizabeth May, an independent voice, put forward views that are free from the cliched, partisan positions taken by the three other party leaders all of whom are fighting each other for power. Everything I have heard or read Ms May say or written has been forthright, clear and supported by facts.

    If this is a true democracy a party with voted representatives must be part of election debates. Why are the other parties afraid of Elizabeth? Look forward to hearing her in the debate.

    It’s a no-brainer. Of course Elizabeth should be included in the pre-election debates. It’s crucial to help Canadians understand the issues behind this election.
