Elizabeth May Shares Vision for Canada
THUNDER BAY – Green Party Leader Elizabeth May offered a view of the state of democracy in Canada to an audience of sixty-five people on Friday, November 21st at the Prince Arthur Hotel in Thunder Bay.
The Green Party Leader was in Thunder Bay to share in reading from her newest book. Who We Are: Reflections on My Life and Canada, offers May’s insight into the state of Canada’s democracy. May states that Canada’s parliamentary system was not designed to be operated the way it currently is, with the power of the Prime Minister’s office being like a dictatorship.
“The role of an MP is to represent the people who elected them,” stated May. Right now, the Green Party Leader says, “MPs are bullied by the staff in the Prime Minister’s office”.
Changing the state of Canada’s democracy May says needs people to get engaged. May stated that “Prime Minister Stephen Harper has done us a favour. He has awakened people from complacency.”
