Annamie Paul says "small group" of Green Party execs responsible for recent court challenge
CA, 23 Jul 2021
Speaking to the media on Thursday, Green Party of Canada Leader Annamie Paul described a legal challenge from her own party as the work of a "small group" of outgoing executives that amounts to a "one-sided attack."
Backed by sign-toting supporters at the opening of her campaign office in downtown Toronto, Paul said the court action was not sanctioned by the whole of federal council - the Greens' main governing body.
Yesterday, the party submitted court filings that aim to overturn arbitration orders to cancel a non-confidence vote against Paul by the council.
Paul declined to speak further to the legal proceeding that revives the threat to her leadership, seeking to refocus attention on party priorities such as climate change, housing affordability and drug policies.
