Does the Full Moon Really Make People Act Crazy?

Does the Full Moon Really Make People Act Crazy? Along with Mercury in retrograde, the full moon is a pretty popular scapegoat for bad luck and bizarre behavior. Encounter someone acting strangely? Blame it on the lunar phases! It's said that crime rates increase and emergency rooms are much busier during the full moon (though a 2004 study debunked this claim). Plus, there's that whole werewolf thing. Why would this be? The reasoning is that the moon, which affects the ocean's tides, probably exerts a similar effect on us, because the human body is made mostly of water.

Instead of, at the very least, distancing the Greens from his remarks, a party spokesperson said flatly that the unity of Canada “is not one of the party’s core values.” If the Greens want to be taken seriously as more than a niche party, they need to get their act together on such a fundamental point.

If we look back at its history, we will see that there were several foreign communities living in Moscow on a permanent basis. We all know about German people inhabiting the banks of the Yauza river, where little Peter, the future tsar of all Russia, ran around, made friends and got his first ideas of

The Greens need to get their act together© Justin Tang Green Party leader, Elizabeth May, must ensure national unity is a “core value” of her party if she wants to lead this country.

With popularity, comes scrutiny. And for Elizabeth May and the Green Party, that’s becoming increasingly uncomfortable as they edge ahead of the NDP in many opinion polls.

What are we to make, for example, of the conflicting and confusing statements on national unity coming out of the Greens this week?

Pierre Nantel, an MP who’s running for the Greens near Montreal, told a radio interviewer he would vote to separate if there was another sovereignty referendum in Quebec. “Let’s separate as fast as possible,” he said. “But as long as we are here, let’s defend Quebec in the Canadian context.”

Elizabeth May accuses NDP of using 'strong-arm tactics' to force defectors back into the fold The federal NDP and Greens traded accusations Thursday over the apparent defections of some former New Brunswick NDP provincial candidates, capping off two days of squabbling between the progressive parties over the extent of the NDP exodus and the motivations of those involved. Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh accused the Greens of spreading misinformation about the number of defections from the provincial wing of his party, while Green Party Leader Elizabeth May said Singh's party used "strong-arm tactics" to push some would-be defectors to stay in the party fold or risk putting Singh in a bad light.

Instead of, at the very least, distancing the Greens from his remarks, a party spokesperson said flatly that the unity of Canada “is not one of the party’s core values.”

She went on to say that “individual MPs are allowed to express their own opinions on this matter,” and “candidates who support the (separatist) movement are not screened out by our vetting process.”

A day later, May herself was backpedalling, insisting “there is no way that a Green Party MP would vote for separation” and vowing her party will “fight for Canada.”

All this is incoherent at best. Of course a party that aspires to govern should consider the integrity of the country a “core value.”

If the Greens want to be taken seriously as more than a niche party, they need to get their act together on such a fundamental point.

It's a truism that governments defeat themselves. Justin Trudeau, whose Liberal Party came to power with a massive list of promises, also has to cope with the gulf between his rhetoric and actions - and the cynicism it breeds.
