Re Greens’ Potential Crumbles Amid Bickering (July 12):
The biggest problem for the Greens seems to be the Greens. When parties insist on ideological purity and forget fundamental politics, their electoral chances are often compromised.
Just look at the federal Liberals: I believe they have no ideology other than to gain and maintain power. The “we are Canada’s natural governing party” approach has worked, even if it means saying one thing during a campaign but doing the opposite once elected.
I have voted Green for decades. But if they cannot stop their internal pettiness and bickering, and start to focus on how to win elections, then I’m not sure I can continue my support.
