Election Debate sign now

The news media is supposed to offer an unbiased and accurate reporting of the news. In times of Federal Elections their job becomes even more important as most voters get their information on party platforms from the news.

The Canadian Broadcast Consortium has taken it upon itself to exclude the Green Party from the televised debates. Why? Jim Harris, the leader of the Green Party, said was not given any explanation as to why he's being excluded. "I have no idea. I can't think of any good reason not to have us on," he said, adding the decision has been made by "unelected" and "unaccountable" executives.

Jim Harris said the Green party is not asking to add another seat to the debate table: For the first time since 1993, there are just four leaders participating instead of five.

With support of five per cent of the population, Harris said his party has earned a spot.

He pointed out that since 1993, the NDP, Bloc Quйbйcois, the Progressive Conservatives and the Reform Party have all been invited to participate in the debate without holding official party status.

The Bloc Quйbйcois do not have members running in most of the ridings in Canada, in fact at the time of this writing there are no Bloc Quйbйcois running in any riding outside of Quebec! Yet they are invited to the debates, but the Green Party with members running in every riding are not.

Sign this petition and tell the news media to stick to reporting all the news, not just the news that suits their political motives! We want fair and accurate election reporting and this includes inviting the Green Party to the debates!
