Just an absolutely reprehensible decision. Realistically speaking, the Green Party has no chance of winning the election. But the Bloc has no chance and realistically neither does the NDP. And yet, there they are.
However, they do have have an MP in the House and routinely hit around 10% in national polls. They will also have candidates running in most federal ridings. That counts as serious enough for me to be included in a national debate.
I might not vote for them even if they could manage to get a candidate in Nunavut. But that doesn't mean I think they should be excluded or that they shouldn't get their chance to debate on a national stage.
And really, I don't care for the notion that the leaders don't want Elizabeth May in the debate, so they won't play if she's included. Jesus....is it politics or Cathy's grade 4 class? You decide.
