Elizabeth May has chosen to respond to my critique of her Green Party website post - 4 facts about Keystone XL - here on the Huffington Post Blog.
Recently, Green Party leader Elizabeth May orchestrated an open letter to United States Secretary of State John Kerry, urging the U.S. to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
