Anyone Concerned About Canada’s Future?

It’s been awhile since I’ve actually had the time to blog, so now to spitting out a few of the things accumulating in my head.

Seeing as this is and Education blog, and people concerned with education are usually concerned about the future, I was wondering if I could get some help from my readers on this little petition.

I am a member of the Green Party of Canada, and currently, we are having difficulties with getting our leader, Elizabeth May, involved in the upcoming election debates.  While the Greens’ popularity is on par with the NDP, so far it looks like Elizabeth might not be allowed to speak in the debates.  This would be a huge opportunity for the Greens’ platform to get out there, since they do not get the same federal funding that the Liberals, the Conservatives, the Bloc Quebecois, and the NDP do for elections.

Democracy is based on being able to have everyone’s opinions play a role in a decision-making process, and eliminating one of the major parties (yes guys, I’m referring to the Greens as a major party, and if you look at some stats, you’d realize it’s true) from debates is inhibiting democracy.  If you want to play a role in fighting for democracy in your country, please click here to sign the petition for Elizabeth’s involvement.  You don’t need to be a member of the Greens, or even a Green supporter.  All you need to be is a supporter of equal democratic opportunities.

Thanks for taking an interest in your own country.  If you are interested in finding out more about our party, check out our site and our Young Greens site.
