Campaign Blog - Day 56

Elizabeth May
Sorry blog readers. I am just coming up for air after a solid 2 days of Montreal media and prep for the leaders debate. I had to keep my head in french. I didn't even want to write a blog. And I was also doing a lot of media.
The french debate was a success. I feel good about a few things --. I wish I hadn't been the only leader to raise First Nations issues, but at least because I was in the debate, they were raised. I wish I wasn't the only leader aware of how dangerous the Canada-China Investment Treaty really is, but at least I got it on the table. And I was the only one to raise student debt and the need to rebuild all our environmental laws, and to mention the pressing need for real climate action. 
I wish I wasn't the only leader trying not to interrupt when it turned out (once again) that is the best way to get air time, but c'est la vie.
I'm extremely appreciative for all the online support through this lengthy election, be it from blog readers, Twitter followers, or Facebook fans. This shout-out was for you:
