Regardless of whether or not you support the Green Party, if you would like all four political parties to participate in tomorrow night’s televised/webcast Nova Scotian leadership debate, make your voice heard.
Our supposedly neutral media is creating a dangerous precedent by excluding a political party with candidates in all 308 federal ridings, and now in all 52 provincial ridings in Nova Scotia. How can a party with such a significant following not be given a chance to appeal directly to Canadians for their support via televised leadership debates?
If you feel that Canadians should have the right to make an informed decision based on ALL of the choices, rather than having the mainstream media make such judgments on our behalf, then it is imperative that we ALL express our opposition to the CBC, as well as to the Halifax Chronicle Herald (co-host of tomorrow night’s televised Nova Scotia leadership debate), for excluding the Green Party.
