Green Party leader to take on Peter MacKay

According to the CTV, Green Party leader Elizabeth May has declared she plans to run in Central Nova, a riding currently held by Minister of Foreign Affairs Peter MacKay.

A Green Party press release Press Release includes:

“Of course we have done our research and if this was just about polling figures, then I would be returning to London to finish what I started in November, not coming to a Conservative Party stronghold to take on the son of Elmer Mackay,” she said.

“But in the end I had to follow my heart and my heart tells me two things: that I must run in Nova Scotia and that challenging a prominent member of the government will enable me to keep a strong focus on why Nova Scotia and Canada cannot afford another government led by Stephen Harper.”
