First Green MP!

Blair Wilson has decided to become Canada's first Green MP.

Blair Wilson, an embattled former Liberal MP who was expelled from his party's caucus last year over allegations of improper spending, announced on Saturday that he was joining the team of Green Party Leader Elizabeth May.

May called it a historic day for her party and said it would ensure that she could participate in the leaders' debates in the next election campaign.

What Planet is Gloria on?

From the Guelph Mercury:
Kovach used the familiar Conservative refrain that the party is getting things done for Canadians "after 13 years of Liberal inaction."

"I can tell you that under the Conservative government, in two and a half years, we have a stronger, safer, healthier Canada," she said.

In the past two and a half years, the economy is sliding, people are losing their jobs in Ontario. Under conservative government in the last two and a half years people are dying due to food poisoning, and it comes out that government is now letting food producers inspect themselves.

I don't know about you Mrs. Kovach, but you must be living on another planet if you think that the last two and half years of conservative mismanagement has resulted in anything but a weaker, more dangerous Canada.
