It's All About Democracy

By Stuart Hertzog

This intriguing collection from greenpolitics.ca offers a much needed and iconoclastic view of Canada’s Green parties.

Activist Stuart Hertzog’s lively, insightful, and often wry commentary shows just how far Canadian Greens have drifted away from the original Green political principles.

Its profoundly democratic vision offers a practical cure for our dysfunctional political system and a way forward on urgent global issues.

Vital reading for all Greens!
