Green Party Leader Coming To Campus

Written by Scott Gilbert

The national leader of the Green Party of Canada - Elizabeth May - is coming to Guelph this Thursday to speak with Guelph students.

This will be one of many stops along the way in what is being billed as a "cross country whistlestop tour".

The party has decided to push their campaign this year in many smaller towns that the larger parties frequently neglect for lack on media coverage opportunities.

May has chosen to travel by train to reduce the carbon footprint her Canada-wide tour will create.

Local Green candidate Mike Nagy will be meeting May at the VIA Rail station in downtown Guelph at 7pm this Thursday and escorting her to Room 149 of Macdonald Hall at the University of Guelph where she will address students and supporters.

Topics to be covered include tuition fees, public transit, climate change and other issues of importance to students.

This event is free and open to all students and community members.
