Ever wonder about the Marijuana Party's agricultural policies? And just what is it that still keeps the Communist Party and the Marxist-Leninist Party from uniting the left?

Answers might emerge tomorrow night in a live television debate featuring the leaders of the six smaller registered political parties.

The Green Party, the Canadian Action Party, the Marxist-Leninist Party, the Natural Law Party, the Communist Party and the Marijuana Party were not included in last week's televised leaders' debates because they have no members of Parliament.

The Democracy Channel is staging tomorrow's debate so that Canadians have an opportunity to hear a wide variety of voices before they vote, said producer Greg Vezina.

"Today's fringe parties are tomorrow's opposition parties, and maybe the governments of the future," Mr. Vezina said.

The leaders of the five larger parties have also been invited to participate, but to date none has confirmed an appearance.

CBC Newsworld will broadcast the first hour of the debate live tomorrow at 8 p.m. EST. The full two-hour debate can also be viewed via an Internet link at .

A taped replay will be shown on CPAC, the Parliamentary cable channel, Tuesday at 10 p.m. EST.

Journalist Peter Desbarats will serve as moderator.
