Conservative Party Spelling Mistake Mocked By Greens

The Green Party, who are on the sidelines of Monday's leaders debate, couldn't resist pointing out the Conservatives for poor spelling in an email sent to supporters.

Conservative Leader Stephen Harper, NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau are squaring off in a Munk Debate on foreign policy, in what could be the last English-language debate of the election before the vote on Oct. 19.

Green Party Leader Elizabeth May was left out of the event but remained in the debate action through Twitter.

Her party pointed this out on Monday: "The #Cons want to run things, but can't spell the name of their own private debate."

The tweet took a shot at the email's spelling of "Munk Debate," which had an "O" instead of a "U."

The post took other shots, saying supporters could cheer Harper on "if you pass the screening process," referring to the Conservative Party's policy of screening participants in advance before they can attend Harper's campaign events.

May, however, has not been immune from criticisms of her own spelling.

Last year, she issued a tweet calling for an inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women. But it drew attention after a sign she was holding misspelled the word "inquiry."

May apologized for her mistake, but said, "Given the tragedy, spelling is the last thing people should be talking about."
