I just got an email from the Greens saying that Elizabeth May will be part of the televised national debates this election:
Dear Green Party Supporter,
I am writing to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for supporting my campaign to be included in the televised leaders’ debates.
Because of you and countless thousands like you who donated money and deluged the airwaves, the Internet, newspaper letters columns and politicians’ inboxes with a national outpouring of outrage, the broadcasters have now reversed their decision to exclude the Green Party.
I am both humbled and inspired by what I have witnessed in the past few days – the exhilarating spectacle of Canadians rising up to protest a blatant injustice.
Your victory isn’t just a victory for the Green Party, it’s a victory for democracy and for the fundamental Canadian values of equality and fairness.
Thank you again for standing up for democracy.
Elizabeth May, O.C.
