  • Their partisanship is showing

    Heartwood Institute rejects “strategic” voting campaign.

    350 Canada has launched its 2021 election campaign—Climate Emergency Alliance. Their goal is to elect more Green and NDP MPs by running either a Green or NDP candidate in certain ridings to boost the other’s chances. We are facing a climate emergency, and concerns about voter choice aside, the campaign is understandable. But, this is a partisan campaign in non-partisan clothing. Their decision to exclude the Liberals belies their emergency rhetoric.

    350 Canada casts the Liberals—not the Conservatives—as their bogeyman, focusing on NDP/Green cooperation. Does the NDP champion climate action like the Greens? Are the Liberals any worse than the NDP?

My first trip to PEI was in 2015, where I coordinated Peter Bevan-Baker’s get-out-the-vote (GOTV) and Election Day efforts in his breakthrough win. Since then, I coordinated GOTV for Lynne Lund’s by-election in 2016, Hannah Bell’s by-election win in 2017, and Lynne Lund’s and Trish Altass’s wins in the 2019 general election. So I like PEI.
