  1. They conveniently didn’t say, “… institute a moratorium on wind turbine construction…” – Why??? – could it be their association with CANWEA?

  2. This is “rich”!……..The Green Party literally threw our local Green Party Rep “under the bus” several years ago when he even “questioned” the validity of IWT’s.

    Elizabeth May shouldn’t even have air time on TV or radio to spout her “nonsense”!

    “Better watch out Green Party or CANWEA will get mad at you!”

  3. I think that the Liberals are more trustworthy — I would vote Liberal before Green.

  4. U R kidding Dave……..right……..the Liberals are “more trustworthy” than the Greens?
