With a (potentially illegal) federal election now a near certainty, the Toronto Centre Federal Green Party association has called an emergency nomination meeting for tonight.

I will not be running in this election. It’s too soon after the by-election for me to neglect my family, job, and friends to the degree that would be necessary, and I’m not willing to do a halfhearted/part-time job either. I’m confident this is the right decision for both myself and the party but it has been a difficult one to make, especially knowing that this is likely to be a very exciting, positive, and historic election for the Green Party of Canada.
After tonight we’ll have a solid candidate who will build on the excellent momentum we’ve established. I’ll be there to help them do just that.
All are welcome to the meeting tonight. It’s expected to be relatively informal.
