Elizabeth May and the Greens call the Consortium's decision "arbitrary". Fine, so what are their criteria? If not at least one MP, as was the case for the Bloc & Reform in 1993, and Progressive Conservatives in 1997, AND WHICH THE GREENS ACCEPTED IN 2008, what are their concrete criteria, devoid of self-interest? Public financing? That's 2% of vote. 2%. The KKK and the far-right could get 2%. So the KKK should be allowed into debates if they get 2% of the vote?
And the Greens are claiming 6.8% = 1 in 10 voters. Ha! If their math is so bad, just think how bad their whole argument is.
What a bunch of cynical lying hypocrites. Just like all the rest. Very sad.
