Getting on the Green Train

You may have already heard about the Green Train. Green Party Leader Elizabeth May is travelling by Via rail from the west coast to east coast this week, with whistle stops in dozens of cities and towns along the way. To learn more, see . This train tour captures the spirit of Canada, formed from the dream of connecting the country together with a ribbon of steel. Today, Canada's passenger rail service is only a shadow of its former greatness, and this is an area that we need to invest in to create high speed rail service as well as local commuter service.

When Elizabeth left Vancouver, she was seen off by a crowd of 200 supporters, and has been greeted at each stop along the way. There will be a rally in Toronto on Wednesday to meet the train at Union Station at 8PM on Wednesday the 24th, if you can make it.

You can also follow Elizabeth's blog at . Her election web site is

We have gotten over 500 signs out to distributors across the riding, and we have a few hundred more in boxes. Thanks to Carol, Jamie, Don, Jim, Laurie, Bruce and Terry, Simon and John. If you are interested in helping with sign distribution, let me know, and I can put you in touch with the closest person who has signs.

If you need to get the schedule for all candidate debates or other functions, drop us a line at and we will send it out to you.

Thanks for all the support! It has been a very positive campaign so far, and I expect we will do quite well when the votes are counted.
