Acting Executive Director of the Green Party of Canada is in a huff over my formal request for Sharon Labchuk to resign. She sent this message to the Federal Council:
“Please ignore this bs coming from Dan Mick. His comments are not based in fact and therefore completely without relevance. Responding will only encourage a continuation of this approach which Dan is not alone in pursuing.
My reply was:
“Maureen, what have I said that is not factual? Please do not attempt to silence differing opinions with veiled profanity and libelous statements that do not include any facts themselves.”
Her next reply was a little more cordial:
“… Staffing decisions are not made this way at the GPC. Nor will they ever be.
Thank you for your comments, but they have little relevance as previously stated.”
So I brought out the big guns of logic:
I am yet again surprised that while there has been a sudden increase in hits on my blog calling for Sharon to resign, the vote is now 24-1 in favor of her removal. If Sharon has so much support on Council and among members, why don’t those supporters go to my blog and vote in support of her? Out of 171 viewers, only one has voted to support her? That has “relevance”, Maureen.
I ask that you all vote in the anonymous poll at the link (below), and we will see the result shortly
If staffing decisions are “not made this way”–which means in a way that is accountable to members–how are they made? If I am “not alone in pursuing (the removal of Sharon Labchuk)” shouldn’t that count for something? Who elected Maureen to trump the desires of the vast majority of the GPC membership?
I anxiously await the inevitable removal of Sharon Labchuk and the growth that Greens will see shortly after…
