GREENS WOULD SUPPORT CONSERVATIVE MINORITY GOVERNMENT THAT GOT SERIOUS ABOUT CLIMATE

Federal Green Party Leader Elizabeth May would work with any other party in a minority Parliament with a serious climate plan—and even thinks she could influence Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives to drop their crusade against carbon pricing “if it means the difference for them between governing or spending more time in opposition,” The Canadian Press is reporting today.

The news breaks just days after a major policy split emerged within the Greens, with party leaders in two provinces calling for a faster tar sands/oil sands shutdown than the federal party platform proposes.

“People change their minds when they see the dynamic of a way a Parliament is assembled and maybe think, ‘Killing carbon taxes isn’t such a good idea if the only way I get to be prime minister is by keeping them,’ ” May said, envisioning the influence Greens could wield if no party held a clear majority after the October 21 election.

“I think it’s really important to communicate with Canadians how our democracy works and that a minority Parliament is the very best thing, if, and this is a big if, you have parties and MPs in Parliament who are committed to working together,” she added.
