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: 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).

    It is imperative that all parties in the election should have opportunity to participate in the debates. This will help to maintain transparency in our democracy.

    What nonsense that Elizabeth May’s contributions will not be heard in all the debates. She deserves much better.

    We need May in these debates more than ever. It is unacceptable to exclude her voice.

    Of course Elizabeth must be included in all debates!!! Furthermore, Canadians of all political stripes respect and admire her. Her contribution to civilized discourse is more than reason enough to welcome her to debate with her fellow parliamentarians.

    media conglomerates should not be deciding who goes on the debate. we need a law for this. the americans have one. during the election, this would be a telling question for the candidates.


    and remember, the three major parties do not have many ‘free’ votes by those elected. the sitting member must vote what the party says. i believe with the green party that all sitting members will vote their conscience and good sense, rather than what the party says.


    i find it disgusting that the three biggies do not want elizabeth there. remember, bad news can be attention getting
