The Red Green Show

Remember that when Garth Turner was bounced from the CPC caucus, the buzz was he was going to join the Green Party? Well, he apparently did, via the Liberals. Turns out he has know about the Dion-May deal for awhile.

Does 'awhile' mean prior to joining the Liberal caucus?

So here is my prediction...that Ms. May will announce there will be no Green candidate in Halton next election.

I'm guessing that once the furor over Central Nova has subsided, Dion/May will announce additional "deals" to maximize the voting efforts of "environmentalists" in the coming election. Some ridings will get Green Liberals (May) and some will get Liberal Greens (Dion, perhaps Turner).

Dion has to turn his abysmal leadership position (strong negative) into a environmental coalition (strong positive) if he is to survive much longer.

All of this may hinge on whether the Liberal Party will follow or desert. Dion was not the choice of the party hierarchy in the first place, so whether they pull the plug or let this "Unite the Left" hijack continue is open speculation.

Wow. Some conspiracy theory. I actually heard of this a few days prior to its execution.

As for no Green running aainst me in Halton, hell, that would be a major drag, seeing the Conservatives can't find anyone worthwhile to be a candidate. Gonna be one lonely race...
