Canadian Politics

I wouldn’t have thought that anything that happens in Canadian politics could suprise me, but I’m suprised today.  Stephane Dion and Elizabeth May have agreed not to run candidates in each other’s ridings.  This means absolutely nothing to Stephane Dion – a Green party candidate in his riding would not have threatened  his reelection.  For Elizabeth May, however, it is a coup, especially if the big red machine actually campaigns for her.  Peter McKay needs to watch his back.  Pretty ironic, considering the number of former Progressive Conservatives who still resent the deal he made with the Reform party.  What goes around comes around, eh Peter?

    Actually, Stephane Dion Inking this deal simply shows just how weak of a leader he is and how he is ready to sell-out on his own party faithful and supporters in Minister Mackay’s riding. It proves more and more that even the leader of the fifth-place party in our political system is more of a leader than the leader of the official opposition. I would suggest to the Hounourable Member, Leader of the Opposition, that he renounce his ties to the Liberal Party of Canada and simply become the first Green MP in the House of Commons… much more fitting actually.
