Last year in September on this page, as Ontario party leaders gathered in Toronto for their televised leaders' debate, I supported the Green Party's demand to be included in the debate, and castigated the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission for refusing to confront both the antiquated closed-door system of organizing this debate, and that system's undemocratic consequences. Only immediate action, I warned, would ''avoid a repetition at the federal election expected in the near future."
