Planes, Trains, and Party Leaders

My mom went on a train ride with Elizabeth May this morning. I told her I thought it was incredible that the leader of a Federal party would give so much time to small town press. Mom said it wasn't an interview so much as everyone sitting around and listening to May catch-up with her good friend Farley Mowat. I wonder if her only reason for stopping in Cobourg was to pick up Mowat.

My mom did learn this awesome tidbit of information: among the volunteers in May's riding in BC is one of my favourite authors, and one of the smartest people ever, Ronald Wright. That makes me so happy.

So, read the article and see if you can spot my mom in the pictures. Hint: she looks like me.
