Green Party of Canada Leadership Interview Contest!Save this online in Del.icio.us. [?] Vote For this Post
I'm quite honoured and pleased to announce that Green Party of Canada leadership candidates Elizabeth May and David Chernushenko have agreed to do interviews for Centrerion Canadian Politics.
May has made a career of environmental activism with various groups, while Chernushenko's background is within the Green Party itself. Both are intelligent, well-spoken individuals, and I'm sure it will be a pleasure to interview them.
Which is why I want you to interview them too.
I'm having a contest asking for suggestions as to the questions you'd like to see asked of the two candidates. Write your question out in the comments. The topics most asked about will be included. You can also just type something like: "I vote for Commenter X's question."
Topics of interest include Green Party policy in important areas, such as the Canadian economy, health, education, industry, trade, federalism and foreign affairs; their vision for Canada; specific issues in the areas named above, or related areas; anything else that fits into 'Canadian politics'.
Winners will have their question included in the interview, and a link included to their site in the transscript and in a separate post on the issue.
Update: The deadline for submissions is Wednesday May 31st at 11:59 PM. If participation is great enough, I'll see if the interviews (currently slated for June 1st~2nd) can be delayed until later, so as to give an extension to voters. - UPDATE: The contest is extended.
