Green Party leader Elizabeth May announced that her party considers Independent Member of Parliament Bill Casey "an honourary Green". The Green Party of Canada and its Electoral District Association in Cumberland—Colchester—Musquodoboit Valley will not be opposing the re-election of Mr Casey.
I think Elizabeth May might be angling for the 'real' first Green MP. I wonder if she can convince her good buddy Stephane Dion to not run a Liberal in the riding.
UD: from the comments "So in conclusion, Ms. Environment suppports Casey as an honorary Green party member for supporting an Atlantic Accord which would have supported more offshore oil development. So Ms. May stands now with the Republicans in supporting more offshore oil development. A proud moment for the Green Party of Canada.'
In other GP news: John Shavluk, the Green Party candidate who threatened to sue the blog Dust my Broom for exposing an anti Semitic posting, has been told that he can not run as a candidate for the GP in the upcoming election.
"The Green Party has announced that John Shavluk will not be the candidate for the party in Newton—North Delta, following revelations that he made comments in 2006 on an online discussion forum that are anti-Semitic."
I guess now he will have all the extra time he needs to get to the bottom of what really happened on Sept 11, 2001.
