OK while someone is suffering. Mostly everyone around her.

Other than Elizabeth May's bizarre meltdown at the Press Gallery Dinner, is there really any evidence that she is unstable?

That wasn't sufficient.

On the contrary, I think she's very centred.

Now that the per vote subsidy is gone - the Green Party will likely have to file for bankruptcy. They were heavily heavily dependent on getting that $2 per vote and with that gone and with just 1 MP - they are literally flat broke and cannot afford any staff.

Is it possible that the Liberals (with the support of the NDP, BQ & Greens?) will decide to bring back the per vote subsidy?

That would be a good idea.  Given that it wasn't in their list of numerous democratic reforms that they promised when they first debuted their "realchange" theme, I doubt that they intend to bring it back, though.

Green Party distributes 'misleading' polling data:

Quote:
Canada's elections watchdog has sanctioned the Green Party for deliberately pushing "misleading" polling data to sway votes on the eve of last fall's federal election. 

...Offences relate to distributing election survey results the day before the Oct. 19 vote.

...The report said acknowledgment of non-compliance does not constitute a guilty plea in the criminal sense, and that no record of conviction is created as a result.

As penalty, the executive director must take a number of steps, including:

  • Prepare a notice in both official languages describing facts of the case and the compliance agreement.
  • Post a notice on the first page of the web site for at least 30 days.
  • Distribute contents of the notice as a bilingual news release to national media.
  • Give written notice to directors and federal council members about the compliance agreement.
