The article is here.PM won't say if he threatened debate boycottBy THE CANADIAN PRESS
OTTAWA - Websites and watercoolers are abuzz Tuesday over the exclusion of Green party Leader Elizabeth May from the election leaders debates.
But Prime Minister Stephen Harper doesn't want to talk about it. The snub of May - and Harper's role in keeping her out - is all the rage on the Internet.
Harper refused to confirm that he threatened to boycott the televised debates if May was included.
He deflected the question after apologizing for another awkward matter - a tasteless Conservative ad depicting a bird defecating on Liberal Leader Stephane Dion.Harper has said it would be unfair for May to take part in the debates because she has already touted Dion as a better choice for prime minister
There was a photo accompanying the article but it failed to get a good head shot of Harper. I've fixed that little problem.
UPDATE: Layton is attempting to defend the indefensible. (h/t - Scott)
