Statement from Elizabeth May

HALIFAX  –  I was completely shocked to find that the party had photoshopped an image of me from last year’s Sidney Street Market. My personal daily practice is to avoid single use plastic items 100% of the time. I never drink from plastic water bottles. I always carry my own reusable coffee cup. I carry my own bamboo utensils. I walk the talk every day. I hope that despite this misstep by well-meaning party staff (who hoped to brand the image with our logo), people can believe that in the original photo there is nothing I would have hidden.
