Margaret Wente points oiut the obvious: the green party is the ellie may party now. Very few canadian voters voted green. Indeed under the vaunted proportional representation systems 9 like in Israel so exremists wouldn't be in the Knesset) where it takes 5% to get an MP, the greens would have received no MPs. The hoaxsters are beginning to understand that it is difficult to fool all of the people all of the time. Even people like george monbiot.
Even HM PM Cameron is abandoning the hoax. barack almost never mentions it anymore. cap and trade is dead in the US and canada will not renew kyoto. ellie may has irritated many in her own party. She abandoned any pretense of a national campaign to win her own seat. She is basically one lone independent MP. How often did we hear from Andre Arthur?
Hard questions for Elizabeth May
Who was the biggest loser in last week’s election? You get a gold star for guessing right. It wasn’t the Bloc or the Liberals. It was the Greens. Although Elizabeth May finally won a seat, the Green share of the national vote plummeted. It sank from its 2008 high-water mark of 6.8 per cent to under 4 per cent – its worst showing in 11 years. In Ontario, formerly a hotbed of environmentalism, the Green vote fell by half.
