There's supposed to be a leader's debate on TV, and because the Green party currently does not hold any seats in the government, the leader of the Green Party Elizabeth May was not invited to the leaders debate. They tried that back in 2008 and after a public backlash, they grudgingly let her participate.
You'd think 3 years later people wouldn't have to get upset again over the same thing. I mean if the green party of Canada managed to get nearly 1 million votes, seat or no seat in parliament, she should be allowed to answer questions on the leaders debate. It's a democracy and while maybe the news media don't care to hear what she has to say, I know other Canadians feel differently.
The green party is taking their exclusion from the leaders debate to court. I hope they win their case.
