An Open Letter To the Honourable Elizabeth May,

To The Honourable Elizabeth May
Member representing Saanich Gulf Islands
Jun 13, 2012

Dear Ms. May:

I along with untold thousands of Canadians would like to thank you for your efforts on our behalf.

Recently David Wilks said that one Member of Parliament cannot make a difference.  I hope David sees that one committed Member of Parliament can indeed make a difference.

I hope that your actions make the Members Opposite realize that they were elected to represent their Constituents in the House of Commons, not to be a representative of their Party to their people.  Maybe there are 13 heroes in that crowd.

We can only hope.

I would also like to thank you for reminding a grumpy old cat that there are still good people in the House of Commons, people deserving of the title Honourable, as in the Honourable Elizabeth May.  A title earned and deserved and not just a courtesy shown to anyone elected to the House.

I wish you well in your attempt this evening, and I wish you success in your endeavour.

In closing, I’d like to offer you a gift.  Another title. 

The Honourable
Lady Elizabeth May,
 Defender of Democracy.

Best wishes in all your future endeavours,


  1. I had a dream a few months ago and you were the Minister of the Environment. Shortly, thereafter I became aware of your intention to stop bill C-38.It is now after your brilliant organization in formatting 22 hours of assembling amendments to the most destructive pile of crap(paper)ever to resound off the walls of the House of Commons.You stood with other parliamentarians to save our drowning democracy.I thank you for that from my heart.

    Thank you Bear Cat for putting into words what a great, caring many of us feel. NOW, these great, caring Canadians must be visible in the streets, everyday! Talking to people and letting the apathetic really understand what is happening around them. Indeed it is as enormous of a challenge as trying to get the CPC to care about the environment, but try we must! Engage a stranger and talk about what is happening in OUR house on the hill.
    Thank you again Ms. May, as I said in a tweet to her during her marathon quest for justice "close your eyes for the briefest of moments and know thousands of Canadians are standing beside you!"
    Much respect,
