Today, The Vancouver Sun's Doug Ward reported, "Prominent environmentalist and longtime NDP supporter Tzeporah Berman fired off an angry e-mail to Carole James Thursday, attacking the Opposition leader for putting politics before the planet by opposing Premier Gordon Campbell's carbon tax." According to the story's headline, Ms. Berman has quit the New Democrats. But it wasn't so long ago she was a member of another party.
On December 9, 2004, the newspaper's Gordon Hamilton reported Ms. Berman - "the eco-activist whose strong-arm campaigns against logging prompted former NDP premier Glen Clark to brand her an "enemy of B.C.," has left the Green Party for the New Democrats. Saying she now sees the NDP as the only real alternative to the B.C Liberals' forest policies, Berman jumped ship from the Green Party this year and took out an NDP membership." Fancy that!
