Iím buying in to Greensí message

Contrary to the message of your editorial [Greens not quite what they seem, June 14], the Green Party of Canada, with its platform, has put all its cards on the table. The Green platform is available for all to see on the party's website. The platform can be downloaded as well, and is divided into understandable themes, e.g. business, family, health. Furthermore, the evolution of the platform traces to a very democratic process in which Canadians have been invited to contribute policy ideas, and vote on those already proposed.

I'll be voting Green this election; it may or may not be a protest vote, but it will certainly be a principled vote. I know exactly where the Greens stand on all major issues, and I am buying in.
