When asked to explain why, in his mind, Ms. May should be allowed to take part, he replied: “I think it worked out fine last time. That’s my criteria.”

When Ms. May wins a seat - then she should be in a national debate representing the Greens. I would recommend that she concentrate on her local debates and win her riding. Cheers. ps: if its a slow news day,the G&M can drop in for a "looksie" on how she is faring. lol

I am not against the Greens - they do represent a portion of the electorate - however - not credible as a national party unless they run in every riding (no free ride with the Coalition) and win at least one seat. Cheers.

"fernstalbert says... not credible as a national party unless they run in every riding"

Actually, fern, my thought on requirements would be a little lenient in some way:

Candidates in 75% of the ridings, polling 5% nationally and demonstrating the ability to win, either by having an incumbent in the House running for reelection, or by demonstrating that your candidate is running 1st or 2nd in at least 5 ridings.

Even Lizzy has conceded that she's her party's only chance for a win, and as such she shouldn't be included in a national leader's debate. If Quebec doesn't like it, then maybe Duceppe can run Bloc candidates in the rest of Canada on the premise that those candidates will push for Quebec's ouster.

Oxygentax - you make some great points and if you and I were negotiating a formula, I am sure we could come to an agreement. lol At least we would be more agreeable (civil)than the present crew of politicians. cheers

Suddenly I recall that at the time of the last debate -- you remember, the one where Liz May and the other opposition leaders acted like little Pekinese yapping at the big dog -- at that time the Greens actually had a sitting Member of Parliament. That was the exposed West Vancouver conman and hustler Blair Wilson, who rebranded as a Green after the Liberals told him he couldn't run as a Grit again. Blair didn't have any other job prospects, so he gave it an unsuccessful go as a Green.

Now, of course, Liz's show has no MPs and she was painfully bad in that debate.
