I'm Voting for Her This October. Will You?

This year's general elections will be like none other. This may be our very last, best chance to compel our federal government to act commensurately with the scope of the climate change peril.

Had the prime minister not reneged on his promise of electoral reform we might not be at risk of yet another false majority, do-next-to-nothing government whether Liberal or Conservative. That, of course, has not happened. And so, as Mr. Trudeau has ensured we will remain under the threat of these unmandated majorities, I have no hesitation in voting for the future.

I'm voting for her and her entire generation. Another four years from now it will be too late. We know what must be done and how very little time we have to meet our obligation. Our mainstream parties and their leaders have not accepted that responsibility and, for that, they don't deserve our votes.

I will likely vote Green in the fall, damn the consequences.

As you point out the green-washers (Trudeau, Notley, etc) are better sponsors of fossil fuel development than the outright deniers.

In Kenny's case (and his fellow travelers) at least we have a clear target.

Great minds, NPoV. While you were writing your comment I was posting on the Greenspan op-ed. Still, many thanks for the link.
