May unable to stop Greens from adopting anti-Israel BDS policy. What now?

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Elizabeth May and the Green Party of Canada are on thin ice right now as the Party recently adopted an official position on Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel and Israeli-made goods.

For many on the left, BDS has been a mainstay in their opposition to the democracy of Israel.

It’s no secret that the more extreme wings of the NDP and Liberal Party have sympathy for this movement, but this does mark the first time a political party in Canada has officially taken this stance.

As a result, May’s leadership is in doubt.

Though she opposed the resolution, she was unable to stop the membership of the Green Party from passing it.

Watch as I discuss what could happen and what should happen in the event that May leaves.

My advice to anyone looking to lead the Green Party of Canada after May?

Ditch the BDS policy and try to emulate what Jim Harris did and make the Greens a party for more than just earth mothers and hippies.

It is a joke of a party anyways. Didn’t May encourage voters to vote Liberal last election? Useless leader.

May is the personification of a public sector parasite – useless to the private sector, inept at her job, socially dysfunctional but living well the taxpayer’s dime selling an endless narrative of fallacious hope. Lizzy May’s rhetoric gives idiots the same high they get after buying a lottery ticket – she sells them a chance to dream an impossible dream – difference being at least 1 person wins the lottery, no one wins in the political dream scape because there are no political solutions for emotional dysfunction of those who see hope in Lizzy May’s utopian fibs - so she will skip merrily on gorging herself at the public trough and when the voters give up on her for not delivering the unicorn rainbow land she promises, she will get a government appointment and sinecure for life for her efforts to keep the rubes fooled with false hope while her pals in the globalist consortium plunder us and loot our birthright while we are distracted on utopian day dreams.

Dizzy May is just setting herself up to look good. I for one don’t believe anything that comes out of her mouth. She is going to cross the floor, and people will think that is because she took the higher ground. I think it’s just another play in her and Junior’s play book. This is her pay back for assisting Junior. She’s a mouthpiece for the liberal party.

John S seems to think that voters do not matter, if the people do not warm to his party he sees some sort of injustice or conspiracy. What a child.
commented 2016-08-16 01:20:30 -0400
So what , she just wants to leap to the libs as she knows her party has no future. It is pure self interest.
commented 2016-08-16 01:19:35 -0400
John S there is already tons of consultation on resource projects. You know little about the real world.
commented 2016-08-16 01:18:03 -0400
John S it is the Jews land idiot and sorry but you do not speak for grassroots Canadians with your anti Israel bigotry. You speak of non intervention then you criticize the country in the middle east that gets intervened and pushed by other countries the most. Your party is about hate i see.

John Siciliano, if the Conservatives were any more “moderate” they would be wearing burkas. The last thing we need is red tories- an oxymoron if there ever was one. What we need is real tories. You know, like conservatives. Why have 4 left wing parties?

The Green party should not follow the route of every other party and simply adopt a policy of accepting Israeli conquest of Palestinian land.
As usual John you are an idiot! You don’t know your history nor do you support the one progressive free democracy in the entirety of the middle east and North Africa that is surrounded by a bunch of dirty filthy freedom hating, gay murdering, woman beating, child raping, kill you if your not Muslim, Muslims.
Why dont you fuck off you worthless piece of crap scum bag John and go post with your fellow Jew haters at the CBC. You are such a delusional liberal piece of shit!

Lizzie the Lush will be in her environment welcomed by the thieving Liebranos! Booze, booze, booze on the public dollar! Perhaps Sophie can mix her the “special cocktail”! And sing a song. Trudope can take off his shirt for a selfie! Sorry if I am exciting the trolls!

BRAVO ZULU, heaven help us if you are correct. We have had to put up with the drunk spewing utter nonsense for sometime and if you are correct we will be subjected to listening to this dodohead drunk, spew all kinds of nonsensical bs as a senator.
Dizzy Lizzy a senator = Canada sunk to the lowest level possible.

May is easily as nutty as McKenna. Give her the job and send Cathy to the backbench.

Elizabeth May has been waiting for an excuse to join up with the Liberals because her future with the Green party was coming to an end.
This is the perfect excuse.

She’d be a good fit for the liberals… women, check… progressive, check…. nutty as a drunken loon, check… In any case, she sees what happened in the UK Labour Party… Corbyn did not take anti-Semitism seriously so he is facing a coup and has about 4% support from his party members. When whack jobs only talk / read / associate with other nutters, they begin to think that they are normal and that the moral majority does not exist. May never spoke out against BDS in a meaningful way until she received 7500 emails from just one small anti-BDS organization alone.
commented 2016-08-15 19:28:52 -0400
She will become a senator and live the good life.

Well, we’ll wake up tomorrow and the sun will come out and the world will continue regardless of what May or the Green dopers do or think – ’K?

As a Progressive Canadian party supporter and person that ran in 2011 at, I invite the Green supporters to become Red Tories and compassionate conservatives, since we need to have people that stand up to the oligarchic structure. It is possible to have sensible policies and progressive conservatism because Canada has for most of its history, based on Wikipedia, been a nation near the centre, and I feel that Trudeau being in power and having such a wide centre will force the Conservative party to become a PC-type party or moderate its policies.

Wilson is wrong on resource development and tax cuts being the solution to everything.

The Progressive Canadian party favours reasonable tax cuts, business tax cuts, protecting our social programs and having a sensible and reasonable foreign policy. It does not want to have massive resource projects unless there is consultation and the party vehemently favours a strong and diversified economy where just one sector does not dictate everything.

That is something which Wilson just scratches the surface about, but lacks in substance because he is so conservative yet he fails to articulate balance under all situations.

Having a party between the Liberals and Conservatives would make Canada better, and I feel it is time for that discussion to happen since it is a majority government and it is an environment with a weak NDP and Green party. What that means is Liberal landslides, and a progressive conservative alternative is the best party to be there to put the Liberals to account, as the Conservatives only engage in populism and are too right wing.

If Dizzy May crosses the floor she and McCallum can run the bar, JT can roll joints, Sophie can feign singing and the budget can balance itself. The science is settled and God help the Jews.

The Green party should not follow the route of every other party and simply adopt a policy of accepting Israeli conquest of Palestinian land.

The grassroots wants to follow a non-interventionist and sensible foreign policy that moves away from war, interventionism, and it wants a foreign policy that Canada had which was much closer to that of the Pearsonian one during the Mulroney years, Clark years and the Pearson and Trudeau years.

It is no secret that most of the Green party leaders have been red tory including May because many of the former Progressive Conservatives lost a home and wanted to establish a home after the merger of 2003-04.

Wilson skims over that knowledge and why the Green party gained so much support after the 2000 election. There was 4 years after all.

The fact is May did a very good job, but many want her to leave so that we have less parties and just more partisan politics? May will most likely stay independent rather than join the Liberals, as May wants to keep Green representation. That is more believable.

As someone that wants more minor parties to gain Wilson fails to realize that the Green party never supported his approach of more fossil fuels, development and conservatism.

At most it was a slightly centre-right to centrist party under Harris, and under May it has been an identical ideological party of the centre since May took over. The Greens could be going in the direction of the US Greens which is more democratic socialist. What is truly going to happen with less Green support and less NDP support is Liberal landslides for the foreseeable future, which is bad to me.

My first reaction is to kick the bitch out into the Pacific Ocean but that might be a very cruel thing to do to the Pacific Ocean. Maybe the Straits of Juan de Fuca would be better where May can swim in her own shit. In either case I would like to see Dizzy Lizzy either leave voluntarily or kicked the fuck out of Canada permanently. Go back to Connecticut or wherever fuck you call home their Lizzy. Fuck off you slimy little green communist bitch.

If May walks to the other side of the Floor, and is welcomed into the Liberal Party, then Baby Doc Trudeau (Prince Dumb) will be with someone he can actually feel to be his intellectual equal.

The Greens were always a bit off. Their recent vote confirms it. In Quebec, so many NDP reps and Liberals are seen at anti-Israel or pro-PA/Hamas marches. Says it all: there isn’t all that much difference between them.
