Macleans Magazine just published its “Ontario election 2018 platform guide: Where the parties stand on everything from hydro bills to taxes to transit” which makes absolutely no mention of the Green Party at all.
And tonight, Mike Schreiner has been excluded from CityTV’s televised Leadership Debate.
If you care about democracy in Ontario, if you can get down to City TV in Toronto tonight, please join the silent protest about the Green Party’s exclusion from the debate.
A contingent of WRGreens has gone down to join the silent protest. Signs are welcome. the Protest begins at 5:00 pm down at City TV News, 33 Dundas Street East in Toronto, and is scheduled to go on at least until the televised debate begins. The Facebook event information can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1649693598473089/

Even though they’re trying to shut him out, Mike Schreiner is all about getting things done. So while the City TV debate is being broadcast tonight, Mike will be sharing his answers to the questions posed at the debate online. We can watch that here: https://secure.gpo.ca/content/mike-mic
If the “news media” isn’t willing to inform Ontario voters of our options, we can help broadcast it ouselved on social media. If you’re a Twitter user, please tweet and reshare Mike’s tweets.
You can always subscribe to our WRGreens Tweets List on Twitter if you can help tweet and retweet green information throughout the campaign.
