Queer Vote calls on all party leaders to participate in provincial debate

Saying silence is violence, an organization called Queer Vote Ontario is working to make sure every voice is heard will be holding a provincial leaders debate tomorrow in person and online.

Queer Vote says often many voices are never heard during a debate and every community deserves to be heard by politicians.

The debate includes invites to parties from across the province.

Jason Maclennan, the debate co-ordinator says “There are 28 registered political parties in this election, and unlike any other debate held, we have other parties invited beside the four major parties.” Confirmed parties include the Liberal Party of Ontario, Green Party of Ontario, Ontario NDP and Ontario None of The Above Party.

Maclennan says that so far, party leaders including Derek Sloan, Jim Karahalios and Doug Ford have not responded.

The debate will take place on Thursday at 7:30pm from the MCC Church in Toronto and live streamed through Queer Vote Ontario social media.
