She used to be a firebrand, holding the government's feet to the fire, a burr under their saddle. but you don't hear much from Green Party leader, Elizabeth May, these days.
That led me to check out the latest at the party's web site. I wanted to see how the platform reflected the current state of the country under the Trudeau government. What a letdown.
I first went to the "sustainable economy" section to read this:
Canada is teetering on a recession for the second time since Stephen Harper became prime minister. His ill-advised political pledge to eliminate the deficit he created, just in time for this election, is now risking a deepening recession.
Two years and they haven't updated their platform on their own web site? So I checked out another section, "a Canada that works together." Same bogeyman.
I went through the whole platform. Not a single reference to our current government or our current prime minister. No criticisms or even mention of the current government's policies. Zilch, nada, nothing.
I think Elizabeth May and her party have gone AWOL. There's nothing there. Certainly nothing to rally behind or vote for.
