Elizabeth May, Green Party leader and Saanich-Gulf Islands MP, returned from budget bill discussions in Ottawa to a supportive crowd at the Victoria International Airport on Friday. June 22.
Green Party supporter and North Saanich resident Jack Thornburgh said the group gathered at the airport to commend May on her actions in Ottawa during the Bill C-38 budget discussions.
“Her courageous opposition to the C-38 bill was amazing, so we wanted to appreciate her strong showing,” Thornburgh said. “She put so much effort into it, she was one of the only five people who stayed for all the votes, so we just think her commitment and her stamina is stunning. So we came here today to say thank you, welcome home and we support you.”
