I read on Wikipedia that Elizabeth May is personally against abortion and "can't see how any woman could do that".

I think it said she was against Gay Marriage too.

This is a shock to me. I always thought the Green Party was left wing, but in actuality they are right-wingers who care about the enviroment.

And another surprise the province that has the highest support for them is Alberta.... Tory Land.

Yet May is associating herself with the Liberals...

Odd.

I don't see how a woman could do it either, but I'd never vote to take away the woman's right to choose to do so. I'm pro-choice.

wikipedia can't always be trusted to be accurate ( since anyone can send stuff in ) , wonder if this is really her personal opinion.
if it is thats interesting, in my riding the greens are all left wingers for sure , none would be considered right wing .
noticed they did get alot of votes in alberta in the last two elections , not sure if thats more protest votes by disgrunted old pc's or maybe liberals ?

The greens are really a big umbrella that holds a lot of different and often cynical viewpoints. Their not all hemp wearing vegans who do performance art on Comercial street , while collecting EI.

It's just that they, like the NDP are so far from any real power that they act like total wingnuts, giving everyone the impression that they are all radical animal liberation terrorists.

In the May 22 election the Greens ran in something like a third of the constituencies and garnered something like 1.6% of the popular vote. So.

the provincial greens don't seem to be doing as well as the federal green party for some reason. and its not the candidates as many are the same for provincial or federal runs.

there seems to be some people who don't mind voting green federally but don't bother voting green come a provincial election.

The majority of the judgements on May's opinions regarding abortion come from a documented conversation between herself and a Catholic nun. She basically gave a very convoluted answer that allegedly boils down to "the party is pro-choice, but I am not".

However, this all comes from third-party accounts, recalled after the fact.

Make of it what you will.

May is an ex-Mulroony conservative, it shouldnt be so shocking that she isnt an NDP type screwball. Especially since the party was primarily founded by conservatives.
