Author has a jaundiced view of Canada, somewhat like one finds in a 'bubble mentality'.
Almost made me want to vote for the other side.

Definitely worth the read in this election year. I hope we have more parliamentarians with her sense of traditions and legalities in the next sessions.

She is a great personality indeed.

Elizabeth May gives us a snapshot of growing up: born in the US to activist parents (her mom managed to take her to meet Eugene McCarthy and Al Gore in DC in grade 5), accepted into law school without an undergrad degree on the recommendation of Bill Clinton, and into politics at an early age. The majority of this 'campaign memoir' is her take on Canadian politics since the Mulroney era, the decline of our global reputation in the environmental arena under Harper, and her thoughts on true democracy. The writing isn't always tight but this record is compelling and informative.
