Does Green Shift Even HAVE Any Clients?

For anyone who hasn't been following this story, Jennifer Lynch's Green Shift™ is the Toronto-based enviromental services company who took the Liberals to court for trademark infringement back in July, and settled with the party just around the time of the election call. One of the more curious aspects of the case is that, despite the company's insistence that its clients were being scared off by the LPoC actions, they were never able to provide an up-to-date list of these clients. At one point they claimed to be hiding it from hostile media outlets, but of course this explanation can't apply anymore.

So now the company has changed its reasoning again. By my count we are up to five different excuse since Mid-July:

The List

We are planning to repost the list of all of the companies and institutions who are a part of the Green Shift™ program but due to the legal battle that we have just resolved, we need a few days to re-evaluate.

We'll see how long it takes them to get into double digits.

On their homepage they still have a box stating "Why is the Liberal Party using our trademark?"

It's very prominent. If they've settled with the Libs why is that still there I wonder.

btw - good question. Beginning to wonder if it's a scam of some sort.

Green Shift Inc may end up having more clients than the Liberals have seats if things continue as they are.

Well, I hope not. Because the NDP has gone completely insane!

You have to remember, ti-guy, a Liberal's nightmare is a Dipper's wet dream - namely, being the official opposition.

If they achieve it, they'll learn a sad lesson - they had more power as a third party than they'll ever have in opposition. And if they get official opposition status, all they'll manage is to either morph into a centrist party identical to the Liberals or get elected once every generation when the Conservatives screw up so horrendously that they'll make Bush's 8 years look like FDR's.

I don't really care about any of that. It's just that the NDP's discourse has become fucking retarded since the last election.

Blame Layton. A Harper wanna-be if there ever was.
