Green Party... 2nd

Holy hell... Elizabeth May comes in second in London. That's incredible. It appears as if she actually had a chance of winning that riding.

This is the biggest result the Greens have ever gotten. 27% is a huge deal. I realize she is the leader, but it will be hard to discount this.

Very exciting evening. Especially gratifying that the Republican -er, Tory - former mayor did so poorly apparently finishing third. Good to know that London (which, after all, is a bellweather riding provincially) stayed Liberal.

It's grand we did so well (Greens, I mean). I see so many upsides here. Elizabeth made no misteps at all, and got great press. This is importantr when considering that during a general election, all eyes on all the leader.

This means there could be an electoral shift, as we stole votes from every party.

Jason Cherniak has already discounted the Green semi-victory. It wasn't that hard after all ;-)

She is honest and sincere in a way not found in any of Canada's politicians, or, arguably, in politicians anywhere.

While speaking to the Sisters of Saint Joseph, at Mount St. Joseph's, one of the Sisters asked "...so what's your position on abortion and gay marriage?"

This is what Elizabeth answered to the Sister that asked: http://tinyurl.com/yytk9c

You really should have a closer look at this remarkable person. It's about possibilities, what could be.

This is a terrfic milestone, but many more gains are to come for the Green Party of Canada - including inclusion in the televised leaders' debate before the next general election.
