Yesterday I was disgusted by politics, I'm far from over joyed today, but I'm certainly less disgusted. With Elizabeth May's inclusion into the debate I think we give the Green Party the final step of legitimate that it has been seeking. May has a style and character I admire, she is principled and she speaks of a kind of government I can accept one where everyone comes to the table to contribute. Each politician should represent first there constituents before there party, and the good of Canada overall. They should be willing to work together and seek compromise and good governance, and they need to work without the conceit that there ideas are superlatives and their foes ideas utter crap. Together the sum of our parliament could be greater then the squabbling mass of detritus we are currently living with.

Anyways, good job Ms. May, and good luck in the debate, as they say, be careful what you wish for...
