Top Green Advisor Resigns over Dion/May Deal

It's not just Liberals questioning their Leader over the backroom deal in Nova Scotia... looks like some high level Greens are none to pleased either.

Green Party strategist Dan Baril has said he's finished with the Party, as a direct result of the May/Dion deal.
"I strongly advised against doing Central Nova and against doing what happened on Friday," Baril told the Star shortly after submitting his resignation.

Critics said the agreement is a cynical backroom deal worked up by two party leaders who once promised to bring more transparency to federal politics.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper mocked the deal in the Commons as the "new red-green show," a reference to the popular television program. (and people say Mr. Harper has no sense of humour...)

"Everything they're hearing (from political opponents) are things I advised them they were going to be facing after this and that it was going to hurt them, and so therefore don't do it or do it differently," Baril said.
And if that wasn't enough, there's more trouble brewing in the hen house... as indicated by Green blogger Kevin Colton's comments... and his blog is hosted on the Green Party's own website.

I'm betting that this deal is going to disillusion more Green voters back to the NDP than anything else... the exact opposite of the NDP squeeze play that May and Dion were hoping for.

    I guess he doesn't want to be a member of the RAG Party.

    RED stands for the LIEberals.

    The RED AND GREEN Party will be interesting to watch - more members of both parties will quit because the grassroots will be left out of who they want to represent them. DeYawn and May will decide who and where they will field candates.

    Odds are he really didn't come up with this on his own.
