Greens lost voice

Editor, The Times:

As any proud Canadian knows, one of the best freedoms we enjoy is that of democracy and the right to vote to elect we see as best fit.

For many, it’s the platform the party represents. Each MLA is to represent his or her riding’s constituents. I applaud MLAs’ work, dedication and courage to cross party lines if and when need be.

Are they not paid to be present and actively participate in the legislature for votes on bills? But I don’t understand how and why the Greens lost their voice. They had such an opportunity to sway opinion from both sides.
