and a new major political force denied a voice:
That would be Maxime Bernier:
it’s a farce, really. HE received a letter this week from the Leaders’ Debates Commission saying he did not yet qualify for an invitation. We have 310 candidates, while the Liberals have only 238 and are scrambling to nominate more. The NDP has even fewer candidates. The Greens have barely achieved in 35 years what the PPC did in 10 months. And yet, they were all invited. And wait for this. The Bloc québécois too! Their separatist leader will be at the English debate, even though they have no candidates outside Quebec. In what kind of BIZARRO WORLD do we live?!! The elites in this country have gone crazy.
