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.
