I have been following the Green Party lately and they have been getting some press with their actions. When the leader, Peter Bevan-Baker, with his very childish behaviour in the legislature, got thrown out for acting very disrespectful, the rank and file of this movement appeared to be annoyed with him.
Because a few weeks after this incident, the party arranged a meeting to deal with Mr. Bevan-Baker. Now they are a sharp bunch of loyal party members and they called the meeting a convention, a fundraiser and a workshop. I guess they are trying to act like they are organized.
The big news of this get together - they send out their new policy, their very first one, and guess what it is. It is a Code of Ethics and a Code of Conduct for its members, and the leader.
But I have to give credit where credit is due, this is a start. I also must say that Mr. Bevan-Baker seems to have gotten the message because he did say he was sorry.
Lately the leader of the federal Green movement, Ms. May, has decided that bullying is OK. She has admitted that she might have been a bit aggressive but she says she isn't a bully. To make this go away she has hired a lawyer to investigate her and have that lawyer give her the legal right to be a bully – sorry, aggressive. The P.E.I. Green Party should send her a copy of their new policy.
