Elizabeth May Green Party MP-Saanich, BC
The determined and focused Elizabeth May has set a number of firsts, politically speaking.
Her election as MP for Saanich on Vancouver Island marked a first for the Green Party who had been running candidates for years without even garnering strong also ran status.
In spite of her impressive victory she was written off before she started due to the fact that the fledgling party had no real status. Few gave her much chance of gaining any status or recognition as a solitary flag carrier.
Whoa! Not only were they wrong.Ms. May is Parliamentarian of the year. Here is the report from Macleans magazine.
