I love Elizabeth May
Ms. May has come under fire during this campaign for supporting strategic voting. Well, this weekend she was questioned again about it and here is her pragmatic answer. If it need needs to be done, it needs to be done.
One of the Green candidates in Ontario, Valerie Powell has critisized her leader for supporting strategic voting for other parties to stop the conservatives, saying May is muddying the waters on stratgic voting, her answer?
Asked if she is muddying the waters, May responded, “It’s true I am.”
I love Valerie and I read her full quotes and they weren’t harsh or unfair. She’s right, life would be simpler if I acted like (NDP Leader) Jack Layton and didn’t care if Stephen Harper formed government again.
Life would be simpler if I were a complete hypocrite like Jack Layton and pretended I cared about the climate when all of his strategy makes his own personal success more important than survival of the climate and decent climate policy.
I’m just not that person.
I love this woman, what more is there to say? If she doesn’t make it into parliament it will be a travesity for our democracy.
