It is time for greens to join the Orange Wave

Today, two prominent members of the Bloc Quebecois came out in support of Jack Layton and the NDP. "Voting NDP is today the solution for escaping the cycle of minority Conservative governments," wrote a former Bloc riding association president and a former Bloc adviser in an open letter. The NDP popularity in Quebec is based on shared values of social justice and a commitment to the environment, values which are widespread in Quebec. Quebecers are recognizing that splitting the progressive vote is inimical to getting their ideals represented in Parliament. Now is the time for progressive environmentalists in English Canada to make the same choice.

Natural gas drilling in Quebec

I'm sure you guys have heard of the debate of natural gas drilling in Quebec. I at first wondered if this was the same stuff you needed to use hydraulic fracturing and apparently it is. I'm familiar with this process and what it's done to the water reserves of towns surrounding it; people having explosive chemicals in their water. At the same time Quebec's economy is beginning to suffer and in the next decade we'll really be able to see the effect of this, unless of course the other provinces want to continue supporting Quebec. I don't know what to think here but it seems it's one of those damned if you do damned if you don't situations.
