Greens anything but gone

Re: “Whitest slice in the political toaster” Opinions, Nov. 22 – 28

If the Green Party “is a spent force nationally,” that certainly wasn’t demonstrated by the byelection results in Victoria or Calgary, or by Elizabeth May’s recent selection as Parliamentarian of the Year.  No question the GP has a very long way to go, but I for one am heartened by its existence and increasing profile—the latter thanks, in large part, to Elizabeth May’s strong performance in Parliament.  There are a lot of people like me who support her system-challenging approach and her commitment to doing politics and government in a more mature, open and collaborative way.
