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

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

    Canadians must be informed of all of the issues that exist today, and know all of the options that they have to address these. Any party which has members in the House of Commons must be able to participate in any and all debates.

    On a personal note, I will not listen to any debate which does not include Ms. May, Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Montclair, as any such debate will provide complete information about the alternative which are on the table, and hence will not be worth the time.

    It is necessary for our Democracy, that the articulate, fair minded, hugely informed

    voice of the elected member and leader of an important constituency of the Canadian public, Elizabeth May, be included in ALL the organized debates of the upcoming Federal Election.

    Not to do so would represent a failure of true and full democratic discourse and dialogue.
