If I Could Only Find A David Suzuki/Elizabeth May Double Facepalm

Nobody has any business mocking those suffering from mental health issues such as bipolar depression.

  1. This is more a story about how standards have fallen and delusions of grandeur have exploded.

    20-30 years ago, the CBC wouldn’t have run a story like this, esp. not in the not-so-subtle way they’re playing this one for inside-joke cheap laughs.

    Granted, 20-30 years ago, a guy like this woulda never dreamed of running for office, and there probably would have been some wise old man of the party establishment talking some sense into him. The fact this is the Green Party makes no diff.

    What defines our times, pure and simple, in every regard, is a total lack of leadership.
