May is not the typical party leader we're used to.
She doesn't 'play' politics. She doesn't get upset, or try to upset others with 'low blows'.
She is intelligent, well-informed and speaks calmly and truthfully.

She is the kind of leader we need, and in my experience, so are other Green candidates.

We're at a point where the vicious shenanigans in the House of Commons are offensive to most decent Canadians, where schoolchildren easily identify politicians behaviour as bullying, insults and demeaning others and teachers are reluctant to take kids to parliament because of the bad example set by MP's.

Elizabeth May and the Green Party are a breath of fresh air. We need more of that.

no - in terms of climate science she's been found wanting several times. My suggestion to "dump" was more in line with her failings to move the 'Green Party needle' beyond her small BC enclave - despite running a full complement of candidates, no "break-through" anywhere else. Given the shallow pool of personality that drives most of the typical un/ill-informed citizenry, May is not the face of a party needing a leader to bring the Green Party forward as a national political force.

I've some familiarity with the scientific background of Andrew Weaver, and believe he's learning how to politically maneuver the Green Party into the next levels; see the coalition play even if that somewhat separated him from the BC Green Party proper. In any case, he's the type of person/leader I would look toward to move Greens forward federally - certainly not May!

and another perspective; not necessarily one I share fully: How Elizabeth May taught conservatives never to trust green activists
