Democracy in action

From the Toronto Star:

Tory candidates told to avoid debates, media during campaign

Conservatives running in the federal election have been advised not to attend all-candidates’ meetings or speak to reporters during the campaign, a party source says.

It’s Debate Night — tweet and post your support

Here’s a request from Steven, our social media director. He has been tweeting and posting up a storm and getting a lot of attention for the Greens.

Hi Green Supporters,

My name is Steven McInnis I am the social media director for Chris Tolley.

Tonight, as you likely know, is a big night with the debate and we could definitely use all of your help.

Throughout the evening, I will be sending out tweets through Chris Tolley’s Twitter account @christolley (in case you are not already following).

If you could retweet them or add your own spin it would be appreciated. The most important thing is that our message gets out loud and clear.

Also, please like the posts on Chris’s Facebook page to help get the word out.

Thanks, Steven McInnis

As things stand now, this is one of our only chances to support Elizabeth May in a national debate. I hope you are able to help Steven make some noise for Elizabeth tonight.

The debate start at 8 pm, Thursday, August 8.

You can find details on how to watch it on the Maclean’s site.

A cheeky proposal

Harper’s Universal Childcare Benefit increase has just come into effect.  I have heard from several people who are livid that their taxpayer’s dollars are being used to buy their vote.

And the worst thing is, it’s working.

The latest poll has put the Conservatives ahead going into the election.

So, what do you do with the extra $720 a year you’ll be getting?

I have a cheeky proposal.

Imagine the look on Harper’s face if he knew you were giving this money – the money he was hoping would buy your vote – to our local pipeline-hating, democratic-reforming, environmental-protecting Toronto-Danforth Green Party.

Think of his reaction!

Donate now.

While this proposal is cheeky, it’s also serious and urgent.     Read more »
