Elizabeth May election opens door in Ontario

Canadians made history this week by electing Green Party leader Elizabeth May as our first Green MP.  Voters in Saanich-Gulf Islands have opened a new chapter in Canadian politics.  Electing Greens is not only possible, it is doable.
Elizabeth will be a strong voice for a sustainable future and bring a breath of fresh air and decorum to the House of Commons.  She tapped into a strong desire for positive change, a new way of doing politics.
With this seat, the Green Party will never be excluded again. We are a permanent part of Canada’s democracy.  Exclusion from the leaders’ debate meant that 4.3 million voters who watched the debate did not have an opportunity to see what voters in Saanich-Gulf Islands did: a bold Green vision with practical policies to improve our great country.
As the Green Party’s candidate for this fall’s provincial election, I am eager to build on this historic breakthrough.  There is clearly a strong desire for a fresh, new approach to politics.  Ontarians want more local democracy and fewer political insiders.  The old parties have had their chance. It’s time to move beyond the cynicism and hyper-partisanship.  It’s time to embrace a positive, sustainable future.
Elizabeth May has taken the first step.  Greens here in Prince Edward-Hastings are ready to take up the challenge of electing Ontario’s first Green MPP this fall. Canadians deserve better at all levels of government, and we have another opportunity for change in the provincial election this fall in Ontario.
