The Hill Times announced today the winners of its 21st Annual Politically Savvy Survey and Green Leader Elizabeth May, Member of Parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands, earned top honours in two important categories: “Hardest Working MP” and “Best Constituency MP”.
May was voted “Hardest Working MP” in 2013 (12%), beating Jason Kenney (11%), and Prime Minister Stephen Harper (9%).
In the “Best Constituency MP” category, May shared first place with Linda Duncan and Cheryl Gallant (5%).
“Elizabeth’s constituents will not be surprised by these results. We are so proud of her. As impressive as her work is in Ottawa, her constituency remains her priority,” said Emily McMillan, Executive Director of the Green Party of Canada.
“On the eve of provincial elections in British Columbia, these honours are a reminder for voters that the Greens will put country before party and work hard on their behalf,” said McMillan.
Elizabeth May won Maclean’s Parliamentarian of the Year Award in 2012.
