From my morning paper, headlined Bankers make smooth transition to politics:
Mr. Perry said being an economist and a banker naturally led to his new career as the deputy leader of the Green Party and the West Vancouver-Garibaldi candidate in the May 17 election.
…”When you’re looking at computers and screens, you can’t really feel the Earth and, for me, there was a big void. And that’s why it was easy and natural to be committed to putting a lot of blood and sweat in working for the Earth.”
Mr. Perry, who drives an SUV but vows his next car will be a Smart Car or another fuel-efficient vehicle, said he cares about balanced budgets and low debt.
