George Read Steps Into The Ring

Nation, as promised: George Read's response to last night's televised leaders debate.

I know, it's not the same when you don't have 4 other leaders screaming at you and calling you on your numbers... but then again, Hinman was largely ignored by the "Big 3" last night, do we really have any reason to believe they would have paid any more attention to the Green leader?

Check it out, and judge his answers for yourself.

The fireplace in the background was more exciting then this guy.

why would the green party burn energy in the background of an announcement? seems silly.

Anon: I must admit, it was distracting me for most of the first 5 minutes, trying to figure out the logic. I'm still trying... just not as hard. :)

Likely because of perception - Albertans like their fireplaces... it makes them feel comfortable, familiar and among friends. Evidence perhaps that the green party is trying to appeal more to the average voter than to appear environmentally correct.

Thing is, the Green Party isn't just about the environment. They are a centrist party with policies close to the PC and Liberal middle - they are just unfairly dismissed as tree huggers by Albertans who don't have much time for that kind of hugging...
