I think it was pretty stupid that the old-boys club wanted to stop her from entering the debates.
But, now begins my own decision making. Who to vote for? I don’t know if there’s any recent polling for my riding, but according to the 2006 election results I’m in a safe Liberal riding. As such I’m pretty safe to vote Green. If my riding was close between the Libs and Cons it would be a more difficult decision, as I fear the damage the Cons would do to the environment is potentially worse than the extra good the Greens would do compared to the Libs.
However, that’s not even a real consideration since I’m obviously not hoping my vote for the Greens would help them take power. Too bad we don’t have the MMP system federally that was voted on in Ontario, in which case my Green vote might actually help get some Greens into Parliament. In either case, considering the Environment is the most important issue for me, voting Green is a good way to “send a message.”
