Green Party is in thanks to Canadian people-power!

Due to the massive show of support by Canadians — including grassroots New Democrats — the Conservative Party and the New Democratic party ended their opposition to having Green Party Leader Elizabeth May included in the nationally televised candidates’ debates.

I’d like to thank all those Canadians and fellow bloggers who adamantly voiced their outrage at the exclusive, misogynist, chauvinistic stance of Harper, Layton and the media consortium.

This shows us that people-power and democracy are still alive and well in Canada!

“I want to express my gratitude for the tens of thousands of Canadians who responded with outrage to the decision to bar the Green Party out of the Leaders’ debates, said Elizabeth May.

NDP Leader Jack Layton and minutes later Conservative Leader Stephen Harper withdrew threats to boycott.
