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).

    All of the party leaders should address the country. As with any debate, if a candidate decides not to show up, voters are smart enough to know that that person doesn’t really care. When two of them collude to tank the debate by refusing to attend, we should all be concerned about the state of our democracy.

    Elizabeth May should included in the debates. To exclude her would be to deny viewers of her lively and frank input, and her ability to keep the other candidates on topic and answer the questions that have been posed honestly and openly.

    Please include Elizabeth May!
