Canada’s Federal Green Party

In preparation of a coming election the Green Party of Canada will be announcing a new star candidate to take the reins of leadership. Elizabeth May, long time activist and former executive director to the Sierra Club of Canada has announced her intention to run for Green Party leader.

Having been privy to her first campaign event, I have to say the she posesses all the criteria of a great leader. Her humour and obvious in-depth knowledge of many Canadian issues make her ideal to push the Green Party beyond the psychological barrier of a one-trick enviropony. Additionally, May’s media savy and long history of environmental activism, will prove to add much needed intellectual policy dicussions come the next election.

Paraphrasing her words, May believes she will have great sucess in elevating the parties status because her platform in content, not poll driven (she plans to sponsor policy think tank meetings to develop the party’s platform) and well….she’s a woman….. who would be participating in a debate that usually doesnt see a lot of women.
