Elizabeth May, Lumberjack

Last night, Elizabeth May appeared on the Rick Mercer Report and cut down a tree. Good on her.

You can watch the clip here. I strongly encourage you to compare it to Rona Ambrose’s previous performance.

I watched the show with some Green friends of mine, including a “deep green” who I was worried would object to the tree-cutting. As Elizabeth started in with the chain saw, I was sure my fears had been confirmed.

“Oh, why is she doing that,” the deep green asked with anguish.

“The tree’s already dead,” someone else pointed-out helpfully.

“No,” responded the deep green, “I mean why is she cutting straight? Where’s the wedge!?!”

So, as it turns out, the segment was enjoyed by all.
