Green leader deserves say

Why isn't the media giving Elizabeth May the same attention as the others, says letter writer.

To the Editor,

Last time I checked, Elizabeth May is still leader of one of Canada’s federal political parties and still running in October’s election.

So why aren’t the media giving her equal time and asking her the same questions posed to leader of other “main” federal parties?

At least ask Elizabeth May what her responses are to the other leaders’ answers to the questions she’s not being asked.

Otherwise, it appears the media are getting sucked into (and thereby contributing to) the vortex of exclusionary politics created by Ms. May’s competitors.

Surely the media aren’t afraid she might challenge the status-quo too much?

That’s what makes news.

So let’s get with the program, eh?!
