Green seat in Canada?

Elisabeth May Green party leader of Canada said that acquiring a Green seat is top priority. Could it actually happen? Well the seat May has decided to run this time is on the other side of the country. In BC in a riding that last election had a 11% voting for the green party candadate. Now the problem with this seat is that the conservatives had 43% and the Libral had 39% in the 2008 election with this you can say that this seat is way out of reach. I think with a high profile candadite that she is she could make a deant in this riding to make her party presence here very strong. In Central Nova she got the riding from 2% green to 32% green, but she got help considering the Liberals didn't put a candidate there that last time got 23%. Now the riding is diffrent instead of being in a riding where the Green party only got 2% before she came she is in a riding more open to enviromental issues.Elisabeth May was in a byelection in 2006 where she went from the 2006 election results of 5% green , and at the byelection brought both Conservative and Liberals down 5% and she rose to 25% green. Now her new riding she has been in and campaign longer than the by election one. So she could still win this by a small edge or lose by 20%, but again all politics is local.
