I will tell you I was really upset by what the National Observer was saying and with many instances of indigenous people not invited or consulted at the Globe2016- which was really sad because it was a huge opportunity.
I questioned if Justin Trudeau used those exact words. I am not a Liberal, I am Green and it was so reassuring to hear what Elizabeth had to say.
Basically Elizabeth says Justin Gets It & We Should Have his Back but not to write him a blank cheque!!
I want to take a moment and show you how media- all media- mainstream and social media can mess with your head.
This was the first title of the article coming out of the Globe 2016 Conference. When I read this, I was like, no way, he couldn't have said that. So I started looking for videos and anything that would prove he actually said that.
I believe Justin has a good soul and I was worried, I was worried something had happened to him...blackmail, who knows what, but something that would make him go against everything that I have come to believe is good about him. I was thinking was he sick, hungover, what could possibly make him say something so bizarre.
And people were upset, all over FB they were saying negative things and it was disheartening.
Then I look today and look what the title is.
I find the TV news the worse, (I rarely watch anymore) as you are basically seeing headlines all the time and you do not get the full story. The beauty of social media you can look for evidence to back up or destroy the story you saw on the news. Anyways my opinion is take everything with a grain of salt and it's better to be positive then negative.
That said please listen to the video below is a wonderful interview with Elizabeth May by Gunargie O'Sullivan of Co-op Radio.
Elizabeth May at the Globe 2016 suggests we Stay Positive on #ClimateAction and we should have Justin's back but keep the pressure on.
