It is beyond belief that a broadcast consortium that no one appointed has decided to exclude Elizabeth May from the leaders' debate. That a handful of TV executives can wipe out the clear voting preferences of almost a million Canadians and exclude the only woman leader from the debate is an egregious example of how our democracy is dying of a thousand blows.
It is time for the people of this country to stand up and let the media and the politicians know that an election is a time for people's voices to be heard and Elizabeth May speaks for a lot of people in this country.
Here is what you can do:
- Sign petition
- Write consortium chair Troy.Reeb@globalnews.ca
- Vote in media polls
- Read, like and share Elizabeth's Globe article
