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

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

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

    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!

    I have voted Green, and if we didn’t all have to vote strategically to keep the PCs out of office they’d have a lot more seats. Elizabeth May was also the most honest and straightforward candidate in the first debate by a country mile. If the Greens formed a coalition with the NDP or Liberals they’d be a shoo-in.

    Elizabeth May is a Federally elected Party Leader – she represents a crucial and critical perspective that represents a wide range of environmental, social justice and economic policies that are care to democratic values. There is no reason why she should be excluded and it signals a sad day in Canada if she is.

    Elizabeth May was voted Parliamentarian of the year by her fellow MPs. She is articulate and skillful in debate, well informed and respectful. Her input is of National importance. She adds a very important dimension to the debate.
