Elizabeth May: " I 'm never running anywhere but Central Nova."

The Iceman has a post up today on Elizabeth May claiming to be a British Columbian and he takes her to task on her fleeting loyalties to residency.

I don't have too much to add other than this:



and this: Elizabeth May's own words.

"Nova Scotia has been my home since 1973. No matter how long I work in Ottawa, I am home in Nova Scotia nearly a quarter of every year, (some years more) working, not vacationing, from there. My dad is 82 (and does not travel) and I would not get to see much of him at all if my riding were anywhere but Nova Scotia. I am very close to my brother and sister-in-law too and they do not travel at all. I would never see them either. And my daughter would not see her grandfather and family and home while I was being a good MP somewhere else. I have to run prepared to be the best MP my riding has ever had. That means being there every possible moment. So where would family end up?? Squished into a once a year visit? I was not prepared to give up my family in Nova Scotia for politics (so, maybe “selfish” is true.)"


It seems that Lizzy sometimes has a hard time with the truth. More here and here.


No wonder she is trying to disregard the Green Party Constitution and avoid a leadership vote.

It sounds a lot like Elizabeth May telling Canadians that their demogracy is degenerating because Stephen Harper allegedly isn't following the rules...


...while Elizabeth May attempts to shelve a mandatory leadership review at the Green Party convention.

Liar. Hypocrite. Disingenous hosebag.

Lizzie May is all of these things.

Can't see any reason for the greenies to have a real leadership convention when the other brain dead party (lieberals) didn't bother

So May is NOW prepared to give up her family for politics. How touching.

What a hag....

That's awesome! The good news for the people of Saanich is that they only have to tolerate her in their neighbourhood for one election cycle before she packs up and tries to run somewhere else.

Tin Lizzie never met a lie she didn't like. If the Green Party wants to avoid ten or more years in the doghouse, they might seriously consider booting her as leader. I do believe they have an opportunity coming up...

Then the new Leader can refuse to sign her nomination papers, and she can disappear off to wherever failures go.

Lizzy is the gift that keeps on giving, so maybe the Green's should keep her >=)


Curse you Iceman! I was on vacation.

Ekos has green polling well in Alberta.

Perhaps she can campaign in Alberta....

Please let her decide to run in Calgary South West would love to run that campaign against her.

Canadian Sense, the greens only poll high in Alberta because we refuse to vote for the NDP/Liberal socialists. That only leaves the greens as our second choice. We would never actually vote for them, but they are less scary than the Liberals.
