On Friday March 12, Annamie Paul held a national townhall via a Facebook live event, announcing the launch of the Time to Run Campaign, calling for nominations or self-nominations to run as a federal candidate for the Green Party of Canada.
More than 500 people have already submitted nominations since the launch last month, which will continue until the wake of the next election.
Annamie Paul stressed the need for a new generation of Green leaders, and for real representation in the shadow cabinet. The leader hopes this initiative will help ridings that are struggling to find candidates.
Annamie Paul also took the opportunity to reiterate that she is proud to be the federal candidate for Toronto Centre. On why she is running again for Toronto Centre, the federal leader said that “there is no jumping the queue”, even as party leader.
In the virtual townhall, Annamie Paul also answered questions on encouraging Indigenous representation in the party, affordable housing, and aligning youth campaigns with the climate strike movement.
