Ignoring evidence to the contrary, Green Party leader insists: “I repeat. Not policy. Not on our website.”

Dean alerted me to the following with his post: Updated headline: Green’s May caught lying that party supports homeopathic ‘medicine’

Downloaded today at approximately 11:45 am, the “Vision Green” document available on the party’s website, and here from page 75:

Elizabeth May repeatedly told people they were wrong, that the Green Party does not support the expansion of health care services to include homeopathy, that it was all a “typo” that had long ago been corrected and was NEVER part of their actual policy.

Elizabeth May denials

Who you gonna believe? Lizzie May or your own lyin’ eyes?

 

The support for homeopathy (etc) is still there in their easy downloadable PDF as of 12:30 pm today. And I’ve cleared my cache. Yet she insists the whole thing is an ancient typo and not part of their “Vision Green” platform. Wow…

UPDATED: May insists current version has homeopathy removed from platform…

…in spite of the fact that the only available downloadable version is the one she claims is old and in error:

Vision Green PDF as of June 10, 2013

Or by clicking this button here:

Download Vision Green platform link as of June 10, 2013

Yes, if you dig through the links you will find the current platform. However, the only downloadable document is the conflicting 2011 PDF which is outdated by two years and she says was in “error”. It seems uploading a new PDF is beyond their capabilities…

Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party, still insisted this document was NOT on the website:

UPDATE, 2:05pm, June 10, 2013: Finally! New file is here: http://www.greenparty.ca/vision-green

But old file is still online, and advertised by the “Download Vision Green” button which links to the old file. (Page title even says: http://www.greenparty.ca/platform2011).

Total incompetence… Anyway, this is my last update on this, whether they make final corrections or not.
