Green Party = Waste of Time

CANADA/ENVIRONMENT - The Green Party is a complete waste of time. For a number of years now the Green Party has been struggling to get attention in Canada's flooded political party system. Their blip in

The Green Party will NEVER get elected. The Green Party will NEVER even form an official party because the most they can ever hope for is to win 1 or 2 seats and you need 12 to be considered an official political party in Canada. They're a complete waste of a vote, a waste of time and the mass media should be admonished for giving such a tiny party press coverage while ignoring other tiny political parties like the Atlantica Party, the Animal Alliance Party, the Canadian Action Party, the Libertarian Party, the Marxist Party, the Communist Party, the Christian Heritage Party, etc.

Even in their best year the Green Party received only 6.8% of the available votes and won ZERO seats. For them to even have a chance of becoming an official party they would need approx. 12% of the available votes.

If we were to be realistic about the matter however the real future for the Green Party is to amalgamate with the NDP and/or the Liberal Party.

During a "typical election" the following happens:

  • The Conservatives win between 30 and 40% of the votes.
  • The Liberals win between 30 and 40% of the votes.
  • The NDP gets approx. 15 to 20% of the votes.
  • The Bloc Québécois consistently gets about 10%.
  • The Green Party usually gets less than 5% (based on the last three elections).
  • About 1 or 2% of people waste their votes on the alternative parties, ie. the Marxist Party.

    Since the last election in 2008 approx. 25% of Green Party members have given up on the Green Party and conveniently forgotten to renew their memberships. The exact numbers is 3,000 of 12,000 members have basically realized they were wasting their votes.

    Green Party leader Elizabeth May had to fend off a vote against her leadership of the party yesterday. These are signs that the Green Party may be headed back into obscurity and will eventually no longer be news worthy.

    1. Speaking for the Atlantica Party I agree. However the Greens, both federally and provincially, do represent fine people with a true belief. And that is in short supply here in Canada.
