Phil Desrosiers


Long-time Green Campaigner

Annamie Paul is the right choice to lead the Green party of Canada. She has the wisdom to set aside partisanship to focus on building allies we need to tackle climate change while securing an inclusive and prosperous future for Canadians. She has worked tirelessly to defend and uplift diverse voices in a time when we need to bring hope to our politics and defend democracy.

I am endorsing Annamie Paul to become the next leader of the Green Party of Canada. It’s a no brainer. We need leaders who understand that when we don’t face our shared history, we risk repeating mistakes from the past. We do not need more career politicians who fear radical change because it undermines their positions of power.

2019 Candidate

Miramichi-Grand Lake New Brunswick

I am endorsing Annamie Paul, candidate for the Green Party Leadership. Annamie brings the lived experience of being a first-generation Canadian, a woman of colour, and hard work to this race. Her early years saw her engaging in rallies, protests, and strikes in defense of the rights of all citizens. Her education and experience more than prepares her for a leadership role and unlike many present leaders of political parties, she had to work very hard to achieve all she has. Her professional work has been focused on international affairs which provides her a great understanding and ability to work cooperatively and effectively with others worldwide. Her awareness of global challenges, as well as her commitment to supporting NGOs, equips her to work effectively with our global counterparts. She has championed diversity for much of her life and can speak to this from her own lived experience. A sense of humour and a sense of fun never go amiss and Annamie brought this to her 2019 run as a Green Candidate for Toronto Centre. As well, she and her campaign workers helped other Green Candidates in their work. There is no question in my mind that this is the type of leadership we need for the Green Party and I look forward to Annamie moving the Federal Green Party forward.

Digital Campaigner: European Green Party

Annamie Paul embodies the leadership we need, right when we need it most.

Too often, I see good people on the left in politics and activism recreate colonial approaches that seed division and sabotage the long-term movement.

Annamie has the charisma, vision and experience to lead the crucial work to build cross-movement connections, engage those excluded from environmentalism and activism, inspire those disengaged by inauthentic and hyperpartisan politics and convince the greatest number of people to support the most progressive policies.

Together, we can build the intersectional environmental movement of our dreams.

Sean Manners


2019 Candidate

Beaches—East York

Thank you for continuing to represent and empower racialized and marginalized communities. Having run as a black and gay candidate for the GPC in 2019 I was a bit nervous that folks may target me for any number of reasons. It was really comforting and inspiring to see you out in the community beyond pride, and repeatedly reach out to include me in larger party events that had nothing to do with my race or sexuality. I am so proud that you are now a leadership candidate because now more than ever Canada (not just the greens) needs a leader who is not going to be silent or make trade offs on tough topics like race, systemic discrimination, the environment, and 2SLGBTIQ+ community.

Jocelyn Grosse


2019 Candidate

Calgary Nose Hill

I joined the Green Party of Canada because I believed in the Green platform and that it reflected progressive social values, diversity, and environmental protection (all of which are deeply important to me.) It was important to me to also be able to show my own children where I stood on issues that will impact their future. I believe the Green Party needs to choose a leader that reflects those values, and I believe Annamie Paul is the perfect leadership candidate in this regard. I believe Annamie has the confidence and capability to move the Green Party forward, and the focus to bring more wonderful and diverse Canadians to our remarkable party. I am delighted to pledge my support for Annamie Paul.

Matthew Casselman


President, 2015-2017

Green Party of Ontario

Annamie is a dynamic and exciting voice that has the experience and leadership qualities required to propel the Green movement forward in Canada. In her short time within the Green Party of Canada, Annamie has demonstrated leadership and a strong work ethic on Shadow Cabinet, on advancing diversity and inclusion within the party’s internal structures and processes, and through her candidacy in Toronto Centre in 2019. Annamie, as a candidate in Toronto, generated a tremendous amount of excitement. The prospect of that replication across the country is both inspired and concretely what we need to expand our influence in Canada.

Jesse Brown


2019 Candidate

Vancouver Centre

Annamie is the breath of fresh air our Party needs and her leadership will prove to Canadians that the Green choice is the progressive choice next election.

I’m a British Columbian, born and raised, proud of our beautiful coast and proud of our homegrown Green movement. There may be candidates from our Province in the running, but we need a leader who can fight for us and win. I know Annamie Paul will bring our voices to Ottawa and be our coast’s most formidable protector against the oil and gas lobby.

2019 Candidate

University—Rosedale

I have been impressed with Annamie since I first heard her speak. My admiration for her leadership abilities has grown steadily since. I think her focus on 3 D’s – daring, diversity and democracy – is particularly apt and will enable our party to attract the support of many more Canadians. Choosing this engaging, multilingual, woman of colour as our leader is the best decision that Green Party members from coast to coast to coast can make in 2020.

Christina Porter


2019 Candidate

Mississauga—Malton

I happily endorse Annamie Paul for leader of the Green Party of Canada. A leader is someone who is brave enough to say what needs to be said. Someone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work that so badly needs doing. A great leader projects intelligence with a voice that can energize and inspire people to take charge and join our movement. I trust Annamie to do all of these things and more for the Green Party of Canada.

2019 Candidate

Davenport

Annamie has been such a pleasure to work with. When running for the Greens in 2019 Annamie stood out from other candidates. She has an incredible ability to bring people together. I felt her warmth right away as a fellow green candidate. Annamie raises all the people up around her. She knows how to make people feel like they are engaged within the green community. She breathes new life and passion into the party and I am so happy to see her taking this big step towards leadership. I know under her leadership the Green Party of Canada will blossom into a diverse, dynamic force to be reckoned with, and I couldn’t be more excited about it!

Michelle Petersen


2019 Candidate

Orléans

Annamie is brilliant and demonstrates integrity and vision. She takes to heart listening to and valuing the voices of all members. She is someone who inspires me with her empathic leadership and her plan to lead the party towards the integration, application and promotion of social and environmental justice throughout the Party and the country.

Jessica Hamilton


2019 Candidate

Scarborough Rouge Park

With great pride I am endorsing Annamie Paul for the leadership of the Green Party. This decision comes with a steadfast confidence in the competence and exceptional nature that Annamie will bring to the role of leader. In a time of great uncertainty, now more then ever, we need the experience, diplomacy and vision that Annamie brings. I enthusiastically support Annamie to lead Greens and Canadians into a more equitable, sustainable and purposeful role on the world stage.

Kiara Nazon


The Green Party’s next leader must be someone with the experience to lead the party into the future, the boldness to champion new and exciting ideas, and the ability to draw many more people into the party.

Annamie fits the bill on all accounts.

Adrian Currie


Annamie is a leader who gets it.

She has a vision for how to diversify the party, champion evidence-based decision-making and build relationships.

I’ve never seen someone with so much relevant leadership experience who’s so adept at motivating team members.

Victoria Galea


2019 Candidate

Hamilton West—Ancaster—Dundas

As a young woman in politics, Annamie and her historic campaign inspire me that we really can make a difference. I am so thrilled to endorse a progressive candidate who is not only intelligent but also caring and kind.

She’ll make Greens everwhere proud as the next leader.

James Mihaychuk


2019 Candidate

Ottawa South

Now more than ever, representation matters, competence matters, and authentic connection with voters matters. While the Green Party of Canada is blessed with amazing candidates for the office of Leader, it is clear to me that no other candidate embodies these attributes in the same way that Annamie Paul does. Only Annamie brings with her to public life her experiences as a black girl, woman, mother, lawyer, diplomat, and Green candidate both here in Canada and abroad, in both official languages, among others. Annamie’s call for greater democracy, diversity, and daring will reinvigorate our Green movement at precisely the right moment, as we all face profound challenges for public health, safe and inclusive public spaces, social justices, and a healthy and sustainable planet for all. I don’t want you to simply vote for Annamie. I expect you to show up, tell your friends, donate, and volunteer. Together we can help transform the political conversation in Canada to one that addresses the real-life challenges faced by all Canadians in the communities that they call home.

Annamie Paul is simply fabulous!

She is competent and confident, experienced and poised for the job.
Smiling yet assertive, she has the right tools and the right disposition to lead the Green Party of Canada into the future.

An infectious, positive personality, wise beyond her years, well connected and empathetic, Annamie is best qualified to showcase what Canadian Greens are all about!

I’m happy to support Annamie Paul’s candidacy as a clear choice for the Green Party leadership. Her personal history combined with her work experience as well as her community involvement make Annamie the best candidate for the long-awaited renewal within the party.

Max Chapman


2019 Candidate

Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing

Annamie is a fighter. She is willing to stand up for communities across Canada and demand a just future. From the very first time I spoke with her I could tell she cared deeply about building a better society where no one is left behind.

Annamie has a bold vision of what our country could be and unapologetically advocates for change.

She has the experience, temperament, and dedication required to lead the Green Party to new heights. That is why I am endorsing Annamie Paul for leader.

Dean Maher


2019 Candidate

Spadina-Fort York

I am proud to support Annamie Paul for Leader, Green Party of Canada.

Honest, passionate, and decent are a few of the many words to describe Annamie. I met her at Toronto’s Pride Parade when we Greens marched to proclaim our support to my community, the LGBTQ community, and even then I saw a leader in Annamie. We need a leader who can bring people together and create a team who can be ready to govern. I believe Annamie is that leader and I ask you support her leadership with me.

Sarah Climenhaga


2019 Candidate

Toronto St. Paul's

I am pleased to endorse Annamie for the leadership of the Green Party of Canada. Annamie was a leading organiser and convener for Greens across the region during the 2019 elections. As a fellow 2019 Toronto Green Candidate, I appreciated this support and her ability to bring people together. I know she will continue this community-building and outreach as leader of our party, and she has my full support.

Rebecca Wood


2019 Candidate

York Center

I endorse Annamie Paul with a full heart. We met during the 2019 Federal election campaign. She is a person of integrity, intellect and humanity. As a volunteer on her campaign, I saw first hand as she dedicated herself fully to supporting and advocating for the folks in Toronto Centre. Annamie is a leader who brings compassion with backbone.
