Greens once again prove they are the Liberal’s stalking-horse

may dion

It must be hard for a person who bleeds green to watch Elizabeth May continue propping up the Liberal Party:

Elizabeth May announced today that the Green Party of Canada has decided not to field a candidate in the upcoming Labrador by-election and challenged the NDP to do the same. (see here)

May’s ambition is to be the Environment Minister in a Justin Trudeau government. Scary thought huh?

    Perhaps they can’t find a candidate. They’re not even running anyone in Vernon-Monashee in the provincial election as far as we can tell.

  2. Jen Says:

    She strongly endorses Liberal Joyce Murray and Suzuki .
    Imagine, telling her green voters in NL not to vote in the by-election.

  3. Jen Says:

    Elizabeth May still complains today that ‘they’ wanted to keep her away from the debates. Well, it was the NDP JACK LAYTON who did not want her at the debates.

  4. Bocanut Says:

    May believes that NDPer’s are so stupid (like the Canadians she called stupid) that they’ll gladly go along her her ditzy proposal.

  5. Martin Says:

    Just further evidence that the Greens under May are not a legitimate party, simply as adjunct of the LPC. Liberal Light as it were. The Green Party is arguably one which would do better in the polls with a different leader. The obnoxious braying and self promotion of the leader turns off many potential voters. She should be honest and run as a Liberal.

  6. Ian Says:

    I thought to be considered a legitimate party you had to field candidates in every riding? This just proves that the Greens are nothing more than a fringe protest movement masquerading as a political party.

    Oh big sacrifice Lizzy, Greens had 1% of the vote, NDP had 20%.
    And now with the NDP as the OffOpp they could do even better this time.
    No way Dippers should stand aside for a Liberal.

    If Lizzy had ordered her candidate to stand aside in Calgary, Libs would have beat CPC Joan Crockett,
    such a hypocrite she is.

  8. Thucydides Says:

    WhileI am not a Green, I have certain amont of sympathy for the people who have invested time, money and effort into making the Green Party a political movement. Seeing their investment stolen for the benefit of the Liberals must be galling, to say the least.

    Since getting the Progressives to vote split is probably a crucial means of maintaining an even slightly right of center government in Canada, it might be a good idea to become a member of the Green Party and use your vote to demand a leadership review. An effective Green Party might even be able to siphon a reliable 5% of the Progressive vote if the party was led by a competent leader. Worth thinking about.
