Jim Harris: Jump on the Green train. While many Canadians do not recognize Green party Leader Jim Harris by sight or by name, he could be in an enviable position. "I just don't know much about him," University of Toronto political scientist Nelson Wiseman told CTV.ca. "It's both a problem and an opportunity. It means that you don't have much baggage," Wiseman explained. But he added: "It's going to be all uphill, because to everyone he's a fresh face." The Greens, under Harris' leadership, have seen a remarkable ascent up the polls since he became leader two years ago. Harris told CTV.ca the increase in Green support means voters are saying "a pox on all your houses. We are angry, cynical, disenchanted with old-line political parties."
