Green Party Leader Elizabeth May is taking a page out of the history books as she hits the tracks in search of votes.
Train tracks, that is. May is planning a whistle-stop train tour of Canada next week.
In the tradition of political campaigns in the days before campaign planes, May will have her own rail car and plans to speak to supporters at whistle stops across the country – some 100 in all.
The trip will be split into two segments – Vancouver to Toronto and then Montreal to Truro, ending just outside of May’s riding of Central Nova in Nova Scotia.
The Green Party has got a private rail car that will be hooked to a VIA Rail passenger train on a scheduled route.
