The Green Party is a masterpiece of contradictions. It argues that “continuing growth in GLOBAL consumption, population and material inequity must be halted and reversed.”
But nationally it argues for the import of 300,000 of new consumers to Canada annually.
Yet individual members like Ontario Green Party leader Frank De Jong admits that globally the planet can only viably support a billion people and Canada itself is over-populated by anywhere from a factor of four to ten. But he won’t post his position on any public website.
So the Greens are for both sustainability and growth—all things to all people. Sound familiar? Why bother.
