Elizabeth May’s Green Party scores best of the five major parties on promised government ethics reforms, advocacy group Democracy Watch says.

Rated on their platform promises to make government more accountable to Canadians, the Greens got a B- and scored the best in three of the five areas Democracy Watch rated — efficient government, citizen-driven government and general accountability.

Gilles Duceppe’s Bloc Québécois followed, scoring best in ethical government and open government. That earned them a C- overall.
