Environmentalists and this election

Normally the professional environmentalists in BC have been solidly pro-NDP, a stance that has driven the Green Party nuts over the years. This time around it is turning out very differently.

We have some of the most respected leaders in the Environmental movement in Canada coming out in support of the actions of the Liberal government and slamming the NDP for their platform.

We have other enviros standing with NDP - why they would do that this time around when the NDP clearly is in the rear guard on environmental issues.

We also have enviros standing with the Greens - people like David Fields of SPEC.

It is interesting to see who in the environmental movement is a pragmatist and supports good government action, who is ideological lead to the point of irrationality and how is standing up for their ideals.
