Elizabeth May, National Green Party leader and MP for Saanich-Gulf Islands, spoke to a packed house at Dwight International School Tuesday, April 17.
She was invited as part of the school’s Earth Week celebrations and lunched with a group of students before addressing a crowd that also included members of the public and a group of students from Shawnigan Lake School.
Well-known as a lively speaker, May started off with humour.
“We are the only political party in Canada that has political parties of the same name all around the world. The social democrats try to say it but the Green parties all around the world use the name ‘green’ because not only is it a good name, but it’s very easy to translate,” she said.
