Annamie Paul embodies the qualities in a leader that the Green Party of Canada needs; experience, intelligence, compassion and grace under pressure. She is the leader who not only can advance the Greens to the next level in Canadian politics, but also can represent Canada to the world diplomatically. This is a pivotal moment in history. Our very existence is at stake and we need a leader who can gather and inspire us to make the bold moves necessary. Throughout her campaign she has communicated with me on topics that are dear to my heart with a surprising level of attention given her schedule. She has refused to engage disrespectfully in petty conflicts aimed at her and is an excellent example of how to take the high road.
One of the most major changes we need to make happen is ending deep systemic racism head on, and with this in mind, Annamie Paul is ready to represent Greens and make our commitment to diversity tangible and unmistakable.
In a field of outstanding candidates, Annamie stands out. I am happy to call her my friend and excited to cast my #1 ballot for her.
