Elizabeth May

What could we change to restore the kind of healthy democracy that would re-engage voters, stop the growth in public cynicism and give Canadians a system -- and individual politicians --they could believe in? Here's a short prescription for what ails our democracy.

We need a Green Party in Canada precisely because none of the other parties are consistent in raising the spectre of the climate crisis, nor in advancing solutions to avert its most serious threats.

She's very much the Stonehenge of Canadian politics: pointless, yet cryptic.
