Only three years after the Green Party set up shop in Nova Scotia, it risks unraveling. The party missed the April deadline for filing financial information, which could prompt Elections Canada to strip it of its official status as a registered political party. After garnering three per cent of the vote in the 2006 provincial election, the party qualified for $300,000 in provincial funding—the bulk of its resources. As such, says longtime supporter Michael Marshall, the Green Party has “a heightened obligation to meet the letter of the law.”
