The Green Party needs Annamie, Canada definitely needs Annamie!
I breathed a sigh of relief when I learned that Annamie Paul put her name forward to be the next leader of the Green Party of Canada. She has the qualifications, experience, and charisma to advance our innovative agenda and win! 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.
We need leadership in this country that reflects the diversity of Canadians. Visibility matters, and it’s time that Canadians see a Black woman as the leader of a major political party and potential prime minister of this country. I want my stepdaughters, and all black girls in Canada to see their selves in Annamie and know that every career is possible.
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 fierce protector against the oil and gas lobby.
