The Hill Times, January 17, 2018 By Elizabeth May I am not losing sleep about the threats to NAFTA from the United States administration. There are serious questions about whether U.S. President Donald Trump has the legal authority to unilaterally pull the U.S. out of NAFTA. And if he did, wouldn’t the previous Canada-U.S. Free ...

Climate action as a technical slow motion process November 14, 2017 This is an in between sort of COP. I have said for years that there are “good cops and bad cops.” This one is a pun waiting to happen, taken from the great Quebecois film “Bon Cop; Bad Cop.” This COP is the first ...

National Observer, October 2nd, 2017 I am so glad I went to law school. I love the law. Unlike politics, law is a North Star. From October 2-13, 2017, the Federal Court of Appeal in Vancouver will hear from multiple appellants who argue the permits to allow Kinder Morgan to build its pipeline from the ...

OTTAWA CITIZEN September 28, 2017 In each of my eight town-hall constituency meetings this month, a hot topic was Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s proposed tax changes to small businesses. I try hard to assess any government proposals from as nonpartisan an approach as possible. My constituents want to know that I listen and respond honestly. ...

Elizabeth May Recent media coverage in advance of the G20 summit in Hamburg has set the stage for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to press for climate action. In comparing Trudeau’s support for the Paris Agreement to the Trump administration’s “exit” from the Paris Agreement, it is possible to associate the word “leadership” with Canada’s climate ...

Elizabeth May June 21, 2017 Right after the 2015 election, I wrote a two-part blog titled “Fixing what Harper broke.” It serves as an ongoing checklist of the areas that need attention — from immigration and criminal justice policies to labour laws and environmental regs. I was confident that, while the Trudeau Liberals were a ...

Elizabeth May June 7, 2017 Originally published in the Hill Times, here. Let’s get the obvious out of the way: the Trudeau administration is better than the Conservatives under Stephen Harper on environmental policy.

Elizabeth May May 15, 2017 At a moment in politics when it seems positive firsts are few and far between, the news that the BC Green Party — the BC cousin of the federal Greens — will be forming its first-ever caucus in North America and in my home province was a rare blast of ...
