TVO is taking election coverage to impressive new levels

TVOntario has decided it won’t take voter apathy lying down. Not when Steve Paikin can do something about it. That’s why Ontario’s own TVO has ramped up its coverage of the 2011 provincial election to be the most comprehensive the network has ever attempted. Alongside Paikin’s nightly news show The Agenda with Steve Paikin is … Continue reading

GPO answers AMO’s call for a comprehensive waste strategy

On June 30th, the Association of Municipalities of Ontario issued a press release that challenged all political parties in Ontario “to demonstrate how they will support waste diversion strategies that ensure that industry cleans up after itself, property taxpayers aren’t left holding the tab for waste management costs, and fewer toxins are released into our … Continue reading

George Monbiot on Environmentalism and correcting Wente’s ignorance

In response to Margaret Wente’s article on Elizabeth May and the Green Party’s decline in the Globe and Mail, in which Wente liberally draws upon a series of article written by George Monbiot for the Guardian, Monbiot has written the Globe and Mail a response in which he repudiates almost everything that Wente asserted. You … Continue reading

Globe and Mail ponders the ‘decline’ of the Green Party

I love it when Globe columnists argue with each other in print, especially when one of those columnists is the writer we all love to hate (because she makes herself disagreeable intentionally to sell papers), Margaret Wente. The other is Adam Radwanski, and over the past few days both have weighed in on taking stock … Continue reading

Spearheading the breakthrough … Continue reading

The un-endorsement endorsements

“Sometimes, when you see a group of Canadians coming out on Sunday morning to plant trees that they might not even live to see fully grown, you understand and feel the deep and passionate faith that the people of this country have in their own country. They must also have a politics and politicians worthy … Continue reading

The Catch-22 of Third Party Candidates

There was something that stuck out to me yesterday in Andrew Coyne’s Liberal endorsement, and it stayed with me for the rest of the day. In narrowing his choice of party down, he had this to say about eliminating the NDP and the Green Party from the first round: I can eliminate two options off … Continue reading

Why are Women and Aboriginals always the target of offensive campaign comments?

The story broke in the Vancouver Sun this morning about yet another male candidate being penalized as a result of inappropriate, hurtful, or downright moronic comments said in print, this time in British Columbia. The Green Party of Canada joins the ranks of the Bloc and the Liberal Party in losing Fleetwood-Port Kells candidate Alan … Continue reading

The Green Party platform may only have three points – but they’re big ones

I don’t think that the Centre for Social Innovation in Toronto was quite ready for the media interest that the launch of the Green Party of Canada’s platform would generate. Its wooden, creaky floors were constantly groaning under the weight of people and camera tripods jockeying for position, causing camera-men and women constant stress during … Continue reading

GPC pledges support for public broadcasting

With the promise that a larger Green Party platform would be made available on April 11, GPC leader Elizabeth May threw us a bone yesterday and gave us a sneak peak of what her vision for Canada would look like. I was hoping that her speech at the CBC offices in Victoria, BC would have … Continue reading
