Ain't No Party Like a Green Party.... Party?

It's been a long drought here in Guelph. We got so used to special guests and party leaders dropping in during the by-election, that the general election's seemed boring by comparison.

Well that ends tomorrow night when Elizabeth May brings her whistle-stop tour to Guelph. She's coming in on the 7 'o' clock train from Toronto where she'll be met by local Green candidate Mike Nagy, who'll escort her to MacDonald Hall at the University of Guelph for a meet and greet with the students. There was originally supposed to be a May event on campus back during the week after Labour Day, but it was canceled, like so many other things, in the wake of a pending general election.

On the national front, Nagy got props earlier this month in the Globe and Mail as one of eight "candidates you should care about."

In other news, I've been trying to interview, what I call, "The Fifth Party" candidates for my last two Echo columns before the election. Look for Karen Levenson, Philip Bender and Drew Garvie in next week's edition.
