I'm not displeased with the results* of the Ontario election.
I feel most comfortable when one or the other of the old parties is in power with a slight majority and the NDP has enough clout to keep them in line.
It appeals to my quest for balance.
And it works.
Or it did
until the NDP became a little too mainstream. A little too comfortable in their own skins to be the scrappy fighters they used to be.
So the Green Party seemed a good place to park my vote.
The problem is that the Provincial Green Party Leader, Mike Schreiner, doesn't come across as someone with a hunger for change.
He looks like a really, really nice Liberal backbencher.
Even his sad post election message to his supporters about watching the sun rise that morning bothered me.
The Ontario Green Party needs a warrior not a flower child.
*Liberals are one seat short of a monority, Conservatives are the Official Opposition, NDP gained seats, Greens elected no one.
