Should Canadians accept CTV, CBC (which is remarkably stupid — have you heard the new Radio 2?) and Global (which has always been stupid) as the gatekeepers for national debates? Oh, I don’t think so.
Given that the Greens rate higher in the polls than the Bloc (which is pretty funny), Canadians ought to hear what they have to say for themselves, whether or not Greens hold a seat in parliament. After all, a seat in parliament is hardly testimony to effective leadership.
And frankly, I am looking for a wider range of options than we currently have. If we don’t get Harper out of office, our country will be unrecognizable. Layton has not performed well (thanks a lot for the last election, it’s done so much for Canada, dumbass) and, well, nobody seems to like Dion.
So bring on the Greens. Greens have been elected to office in many countries more progressive than our own and have done well.
And Greens . . . don’t mess it up.
