NDP Flyers Comparing Greens To Conservatives Are 'Blatantly Dishonest': May

  NDP Flyers Comparing Greens To Conservatives Are 'Blatantly Dishonest': May CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI — Green Party Leader Elizabeth May is calling out the NDP for sending out what she calls “blatantly dishonest” literature in battleground ridings in southern Vancouver Island. The NDP, however, says it is just repeating May’s own words. “It is a typical smear campaign,” May told HuffPost Canada during an interview on a drive between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, where she visited provincially held Green seats the federal party hopes to win on Oct. 21.

Since the writ dropped on Sept. 11, Canada’s progressive vote has been Jagmeet Singh’s to lose. The man won the NDP leadership with resounding momentum, sweeping every other candidate with a majority on the first ballot. But then what? He publicly faltered on foreign policy. He took flak for his wardrobe of bespoke suits. He seemed unsure about his own party’s stance on gun control. On racial and immigration issues, however, Singh has shone tremendously, especially after Justin Trudeau’s blackface scandal and numerous videos shot of white people saying racist things at him. As Trudeau sheds votes, the NDP has been gaining. A month ago, pundits would have told you the NDP was toast, and the Greens were the flashy new progressive choice; now, as the Greens slink back in the polls, Singh is spending the final days of his campaign in their back yard, travelling across Vancouver Island and hugging every man, woman and tree he meets. And why not? The man won’t become Prime Minister next week, but he’s still got something to celebrate.

Green Leader Elizabeth May promises electoral reform, lowering voting age to 16

  Green Leader Elizabeth May promises electoral reform, lowering voting age to 16 VANCOUVER — Green Leader Elizabeth May says if her party is elected Monday, it will be the last federal government in Canada chosen by the first-past-the-post system. In a release, May says a Green government would launch a citizens' assembly with a mandate to make recommendations to Parliament on a new electoral system based on proportional representation. The Greens also say they will lower the voting age to 16. The Liberals included electoral reform as part of their platform for the 2015 election, but dropped the idea shortly after winning a majority mandate.

That ’s right. Elizabeth May and the Greens want to blacklist an environmental charity, simply for their connection to Israel. This is a fact that seems to be lost on the radical BDS crowd in the Green Party that would boycott the very same Israelis and Israeli companies that are developing Green technology.
