...as your party self-immolates, please consider supporting Michael Ignatieff in the upcoming Federal election. It is an unpalatable truth that the Alberta tar sands cannot simply be shut down or wished away, only managed in a fashion more responsible than is currently the case. And, as the NDP proved in the last Federal and B.C. Provincial elections, they are too beholden to their Union base to push for the kinds of measures necessary to green our automobile, lumber and etc. industries.
And as for Mr. Hertzog, who writes
In attempting to be just like all the other parties in the belief that this will get a single Green MP elected, the Green Party of Canada has thrown out its principles in its bid for power.
...well, principles are lovely in the abstract but under the circumstances this is nothing more than the expression of a political death wish. Without Elizabeth May the federal Green Party is nothing, and if the federal Green Party itself is a factor in her failing to gain a seat in the HOC next election, then the Green Party will lose Elizabeth May. You people will be back to raising money by holding salmon bakes and selling mushrooms, less a political party than a cult of aging hippies running around the gulf islands in Jesus robes and eating roots and berries. D'you want that?
PS. I think she should have run here, by the way. I could see May easily adding another 10% to Nagy's total.
