Is the Queen of the Greens Pouting?
Elizabeth May was none too happy when the Green Party membership voted in favour of a motion supporting the Boycott Divest Sanction movement opposing Israel's illegal occupation of the Palestinian homeland. The resolution is here.
May opposed the motion, supposedly because she found it "polarizing." It would seem she either has no idea of what Israel has become under Netanyahu's rule or she simply could care less. It also seems she has taken a liking to the "go along to get along" approach to fundamental human rights.
Now, according to CBC, Ms. May says she's pondering her future as Queen of the Greens. Is she pouting, having a snit? Is this Mayspeak for it's my way or the highway? Is it that the hardest working MP on the Hill is just plain worn out?
I've had a feeling of late that the air has leaked out of the Green Party.
Polarizing? What, is the resolution going to fracture Canadian unity? Will it mean that Parliament won't be unanimous in kissing Netanyahu's ass?
Will the Green Party survive without Elizabeth May? If not, perhaps better that it be gone.
