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).

    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.

    Elizabeth May must be present if any debate is to be considered legitimate. Respected across party lines, Elizabeth was chosen by her fellow MPs as: Parliamentarian of the Year 2012, Hardest Working MP 2013, and Best Orator 2014. Hill Times recognized her as the Hardest Working MP, Best Constituency MP, and Best Public Speaker in both 2013 and 2014.

    Elizabeth May absolutely needs to be there, the Green Party is a significant part of Canada and we need to be heard. A fair debate includes the leaders of all parties.

    I will sign and also wish to thank you:


    Thanks, Elizabeth May and the Green Party, for standing tall in your pledge:


    “We will repeal as unconstitutional the Foreign Accounts Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). It essentially deprives any Canadian with US connections (even those short of dual citizenship) of full rights to privacy and treats them as a lesser Canadian.”


    and vowing…


    “We will also repeal Bill C-24 which allows the minister of citizenship to revoke citizenship. Other threats to Canadians will be eliminated with the repeal of Bill C-51.”


    saying, “It’s Time to Restore Democracy”.


    I hope this makes the media so every US Person in Canada knows which Leader stands up for their Canadian rights.

    Elizabeth May has important things to say regarding the equality of all Canadians, and how we can all have worthwhile lives here…education, health care, care for seniors, affordable child care, care for the earth.. She is honest and not into power. She does this work out of her love of this country, and that means us too!

    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.
