This is a genius idea.
Now, once the Green party has its first sitting MP, Elizabeth May insists there’s no more reason why Green party should be excluded from the leaders’ debates.
But if having a sitting MP is all what’s needed – then why can’t CHP arrange it so that one of the Conservatives (let’s say – Ken Epp, an Edmonton MP who’s been recently backstabbed by the Conservative cabinet* and who is not running for re-election (hence – he has nothing to lose) could just cross the floor to the CHP. That will give the CHP its first sitting MP and that would allow Ron Gray to participate in the debates. (They won’t be able to refuse if having a single Liberal turned Green MP is enough for Elizabeth May to participate.)
Check them out. Dandy way to divide the Right.
• ‘Backstabbing’ is one way of putting it. We at Birth Pangs put it somewhat differently.
