Elizabeth May is yesterday’s leader..and I say that with a bitterweet smile.
While she was and is still, for the most part, a formidable parliamentarian, like Tom Mulcair , ousted NDP leader, she has fallen behind her constituency when it comes to values and political philosophy..
May always seemed to have a lamentable tendency to go along with whatever spew Harper chose to throw at Parliament, and her voting record does not bode well for the progressives being increasingly attracted to her party..you could argue that her party has now swung Left while she remains firmly mid-Right on everything except the environment..not a pretty picture for those of us who are frustrated with the NDP foot-dragging, and want an alternative..
Although she might decide to tough it out, this is an opportunity for fresh blood to lead the party, and I believe that she knows it’s time…
