Across Canada, there's never been a Green Party government federally or provincially.

But on Tuesday, that could all change when people on Prince Edward Island cast their ballots.

If the polls are right, the P.E.I. Green Party is out in front, ahead of the ruling Liberals and the Progressive Conservatives.

Kerry Campbell is CBC's P.E.I. provincial affairs reporter. Today on Front Burner, he joins guest host J.P. Tasker to walk us through how a Scottish-Canadian dentist leading a party that's never won before… could end up the next premier of P.E.I.
