Do you recognise this woman? It's Jennifer Wright from Green Shift. You know. The one that is suing the Liberal Party.
Well, if memory serves, she said her biggest problem with the Lib's using that term as the title of their carbon tax program, was that she did not in any way want to be associated with anything political or any political party. In fact, when you click on the above link, the front page of their site makes that kind of clear.
So isn't it a bit strange that she will be visiting Guelph today? Yes that's right. Smack dab in the middle of a federal by election, Ms. Wright thought it would be a good time to speak to a newspaper about her non-political stance and her fight with a political party.
Unbelievable. Anyone care to tell how she's not gaining publicity for her company?
At the very least, it would be nice if the Mercury asked her some real questions, such as, how much business has been lost? How many actual customers have expressed real concern and horror that their green actions might somehow be mistaken for agreeing with a federal tax plan? Are hundreds of people still calling and e-mailing daily asking to speak to someone in the Liberal Party?
Of course, since she's taking this matter to court, she can't really speak to such issues can she? Which begs the question, why do an interview?
The real question for me is did she call the Mercury or did they call her. If the paper called her, I'd like to know what her issues have to do with Guelph? If she called them, well that would be telling.
You'll notice on the blog link to the Mercury, MacKay is also going to be in town. I wonder if he'll offer Ms. Wright his support for her plight?
That would be one heck of a photo op wouldn't it? ;)
