A wonderful day campaigning in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. In Halifax, we held a press conference to release our position on Canada Post. It was interesting to hear from even some supporters on twitter that they see ending daily delivery to the door as a green move. Actually, the shift moves postal workers from public transit and walking their route, to delivery by vehicles from big box to big box. It increases the carbon footprint of mail delivery.
On to Prince Edward Island where PEI Green leader, the first Green MLA in the island province, Peter Bevan-Baker and I met with Premier Wade MacLauchlan to discuss issues of mutual concern including the upcoming climate negotiations. We held a rally at the Legacy community gardens and a fundraiser at the local Legion.
And we hit the 30 day mark... 48 days to go.
