Greens seek recognition
Elizabeth May is arguing (unsurprisingly) that she ought to be included in the leaders' debates in the next election. I would urge the signing of the Green Party's petition to be included; if nothing else, someone as smart as May should be at the table. Democratic discourse is served best when bright people like May are given a voice. I've been consistently impressed with Elizabeth May ever since I heard her nuanced and reasoned comments on abortion and gay marriage. She has shown herself to be both reasonable and passionate, and very thoughtful - unlike her predecessor, whom I never could bring myself to like. She deserves a spot in the debate, and Canadians deserve a chance to hear her speak.
