Give Green Party a chance

She’s right to be feeling scared and hopeless and depressed

Give Green Party a chance

Although I think Alistair MacGregor has done a fine job as our MP, I haven’t been able to make up my mind as to how I should vote this time around.

To me, it’s crucial that the government we elect is one that puts the future of my kid, and your kids, first and foremost because they’re the generation that is burdened with the mess their parents and grandparents are still making. So the other day I called my 26-year-old daughter and asked her who she wants me to vote for. She said the Green Party, because she trusts Elizabeth May to do what needs to be done. Like countless millions of young people around the world, my daughter looks into the future and is terrified by what she sees. She’s right to be feeling scared and hopeless and depressed because the state of the planet is getting worse every single second and meanwhile, her elders, who should know better, keep electing governments that seem to think financial prosperity is their (and our) only agenda. I want my daughter, and your daughters, and your sons, and your grandchildren, to wake up every morning feeling hopeful, and ready to work hard to save this beautiful planet we share. Let’s give the Green Party a chance this time around — because goodness knows they might well be our ONLY chance.
