Canada gets first Green MP
by David Masters
September 1, 2008
A former Liberal member of the Canadian Parliament has defected to the Green Party, making him the first Green MP in Canada’s history.
Blair Wilson, the MP in question, called his transfer to the Greens a ‘great moment’ for the Green Party.
Wilson, who was ousted from the Liberal party following allegations of misspending, had been looking to rejoin the Liberals, but decided to enter discussions with Green Party leader Elizabeth May.
Wilson found that he and Ms. May had a lot in common and decided to join the party.
He is the first Green MP to sit as an MP in Canada, the US or the UK.
