Annamie ferait une excellente cheffe du Parti Vert du Canada. Ses priorités, à savoir améliorer la diversité du parti et défendre une reprise durable et équitable de l’après COVID-19, sont exactement celles qui doivent faire l’objet de nos plus importants efforts.

Elle a l’expérience, la vision et le courage nécessaires pour mener le parti vers sa prochaine époque et je suis fière de soutenir sa candidature ainsi que celle d’Amita Kuttner.

Annamie Paul a rejoint le Parti Vert pour les mêmes raisons que moi. Comme moi, elle n’a jamais eu qu’une seule base politique, le Parti vert du Canada, et elle est totalement dévouée envers ses membres. J’ai fait la connaissance d’Annamie Paul, d’abord en tant que candidate fédérale du Parti Vert du Canada en 2019, puis quand nous étions membres du cabinet fantôme du PVC. Je sais qu’elle est authentique, et qu’elle respecte les critères d’éthique professionnelle et politique les plus rigoureux.

Annamie Paul est le bon choix pour diriger le Parti vert du Canada. Elle a la sagesse de mettre de côté la partisanerie pour privilégier les alliances dont nous avons besoin pour lutter contre les changements climatiques tout en assurant un avenir inclusif et prospère pour les Canadiens. Elle a travaillé sans relâche pour défendre et encourager des voix diversifiées à une époque où il est nécessaire de retrouver espoir en la politique et de défendre la démocratie.

Je soutiens Annamie Paul pour la direction du Parti vert. Annamie apporte l'expérience vécue d’une Canadienne de première génération, une femme de couleur et un travail acharné à cette course. Depuis qu’elle était jeune elle participait dans des rassemblements, des manifestations et des grèves pour la défense des droits de tous les citoyens. Son éducation et son expérience lui ont préparée pour ce rôle de leadership et contrairement à de nombreux dirigeants actuels de partis politiques, elle a dû travailler très dur pour réaliser tout ce qu'elle a accompli. Son travail professionnel a été centré autour les affaires internationales, ce qui lui donne une grande compréhension et une grande capacité à travailler en coopération et efficacement avec d'autres dans le monde. Sa conscience des défis mondiaux, ainsi que son engagement à soutenir les ONG, lui permettent de travailler efficacement avec nos collègues autour du monde. Elle a plaidé en faveur de la diversité pendant une grande partie de sa vie et peut en parler à partir de sa propre expérience vécue. De plus, un sens de l'humour et un peu d’amusement ne vont jamais mal, et Annamie a apporté cela à sa course fédérale de 2019 en tant que candidate verte pour le Toronto Centre. De plus, elle et ses agents de campagne ont aidé d'autres candidats verts. Il n’y a aucun doute dans mon esprit que ceci est le leadership dont nous avons besoin pour le Parti vert et j'ai hâte qu'Annamie fasse progresser le Parti vert fédéral.

Winning Ontario Campaign Manager

As the manager of the historic campaign that elected the first Green Party member to provincial parliament in Ontario’s history, I am excited and proud to share my support for Annamie Paul as our next federal leader.

Annamie Paul has the experience, knowledge, values and determination to build a better Canada, one where we will be stronger together through our diversity and differences, and building on the common ground of our values of inclusion, compassion, hard work and getting the job done.

My endorsement is mine alone. While I have worked with many campaigns and candidates, this endorsement is exclusively by and from me. I hope you'll join me in support Annamie Paul as the next leader of the Green Party of Canada.

I joined the Green Party of Canada because I believed in the Green platform and that it reflected progressive social values, diversity, and environmental protection (all of which are deeply important to me.) It was important to me to also be able to show my own children where I stood on issues that will impact their future. I believe the Green Party needs to choose a leader that reflects those values, and I believe Annamie Paul is the perfect leadership candidate in this regard. I believe Annamie has the confidence and capability to move the Green Party forward, and the focus to bring more wonderful and diverse Canadians to our remarkable party. I am delighted to pledge my support for Annamie Paul.

Annamie is a dynamic and exciting voice that has the experience and leadership qualities required to propel the Green movement forward in Canada. In her short time within the Green Party of Canada, Annamie has demonstrated leadership and a strong work ethic on Shadow Cabinet, on advancing diversity and inclusion within the party’s internal structures and processes, and through her candidacy in Toronto Centre in 2019. Annamie, as a candidate in Toronto, generated a tremendous amount of excitement. The prospect of that replication across the country is both inspired and concretely what we need to expand our influence in Canada.

Annamie est la bouffée d’air frais qu’il fallait à notre parti, et son leadership va prouver aux Canadiens que le choix des Verts est le choix progressiste à faire, dès les prochaines élections.

Je suis un Britanno-Colombien, je suis né dans cette province et j’y ai grandi, je suis fier de nos côtes et de notre mouvement vert local. Plusieurs candidats viennent de notre province, mais il nous faut une cheffe qui saura se battre pour nous et remporter la victoire. Je suis certain qu’Annamie Paul nous représentera bien à Ottawa, et qu’elle protègera vigoureusement nos côtes du lobby du gaz et du pétrole.

I have been impressed with Annamie since I first heard her speak. My admiration for her leadership abilities has grown steadily since. I think her focus on 3 D’s – daring, diversity and democracy – is particularly apt and will enable our party to attract the support of many more Canadians. Choosing this engaging, multilingual, woman of colour as our leader is the best decision that Green Party members from coast to coast to coast can make in 2020.

I happily endorse Annamie Paul for leader of the Green Party of Canada. A leader is someone who is brave enough to say what needs to be said. Someone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work that so badly needs doing. A great leader projects intelligence with a voice that can energize and inspire people to take charge and join our movement. I trust Annamie to do all of these things and more for the Green Party of Canada.

Annamie has been such a pleasure to work with. When running for the Greens in 2019 Annamie stood out from other candidates. She has an incredible ability to bring people together. I felt her warmth right away as a fellow green candidate. Annamie raises all the people up around her. She knows how to make people feel like they are engaged within the green community. She breathes new life and passion into the party and I am so happy to see her taking this big step towards leadership. I know under her leadership the Green Party of Canada will blossom into a diverse, dynamic force to be reckoned with, and I couldn’t be more excited about it!

Annamie est brillante, intègre et visionnaire. Elle a à coeur d’être à l’écoute et de mettre en valeur la voix de tou-te-s les membres. Elle est une personne qui m’inspire par son leadership empathique et son plan de mener le Parti vers l’intégration, l’application et le rayonnement de la justice sociale et environnementale à travers le Parti et le pays.

Le choix de notre prochain-e leader n’a jamais été aussi important qu’à l’heure actuelle. La pandémie nous dévoile la vulnérabilité de tou-te-s et chacun-e. Mais surtout, elle dévoile la réalité des injustices économiques et sociales, les personnes les plus marginalisées sont et seront les plus gravement affectées. Nous avons la chance comme Parti de mettre en valeur nos politiques et d’affecter de réels changements. Annamie est la personne que je choisirais pour me représenter et pour nous représenter dans la société canadienne pour guider la population vers un monde où nous valorisons la personne au-delà du profit!

With great pride I am endorsing Annamie Paul for the leadership of the Green Party. This decision comes with a steadfast confidence in the competence and exceptional nature that Annamie will bring to the role of leader. In a time of great uncertainty, now more then ever, we need the experience, diplomacy and vision that Annamie brings. I enthusiastically support Annamie to lead Greens and Canadians into a more equitable, sustainable and purposeful role on the world stage.

The Green Party’s next leader must be someone with the experience to lead the party into the future, the boldness to champion new and exciting ideas, and the ability to draw many more people into the party.

Annamie fits the bill on all accounts.

Annamie is a leader who gets it.

She has a vision for how to diversify the party, champion evidence-based decision-making and build relationships.

I’ve never seen someone with so much relevant leadership experience who’s so adept at motivating team members.

She’ll make Greens everwhere proud as the next leader.

Co-Founder

Green Party of Canada

As one of the earliest Greens involved in the party, I am endorsing Annamie Paul for the leadership. I see in her many of the same qualities that I discovered in Betty [Nickerson] – resourceful, articulate, passionate, eminently qualified and ready for the job. People could see themselves in Betty and more will see themselves in Annamie.

A leader has two faces – one that the public sees and one that the party members see. This means two jobs. The public one is to articulate the Green program and principles that will move us all more safely into the future. The inward one is to find that very difficult piece of middle ground that keeps the most members active and engaged. Negotiation skills, consultation skills, conflict resolution skills – these are things that Annamie has a lifetime of experience doing.

Ottawa South

Now more than ever, representation matters, competence matters, and authentic connection with voters matters. While the Green Party of Canada is blessed with amazing candidates for the office of Leader, it is clear to me that no other candidate embodies these attributes in the same way that Annamie Paul does. Only Annamie brings with her to public life her experiences as a black girl, woman, mother, lawyer, diplomat, and Green candidate both here in Canada and abroad, in both official languages, among others. Annamie’s call for greater democracy, diversity, and daring will reinvigorate our Green movement at precisely the right moment, as we all face profound challenges for public health, safe and inclusive public spaces, social justices, and a healthy and sustainable planet for all. I don’t want you to simply vote for Annamie. I expect you to show up, tell your friends, donate, and volunteer. Together we can help transform the political conversation in Canada to one that addresses the real-life challenges faced by all Canadians in the communities that they call home.

Thanks for the endorsement Juanita! A huge strength of the Green Party is that it's a global movement taking on global challenges. Juanita Goebertus is an elected Green Party Congresswoman in Colombia, where's she's played a central role in Colombian peace talks. She was recently recognized as the most highly respected member of Congress in Colombia and is predicted as the possible next president. I collaborated with Juanita as part of the Innovation Hub I started for NGOs taking on global challenges.

Annamie is a fighter. She is willing to stand up for communities across Canada and demand a just future. From the very first time I spoke with her I could tell she cared deeply about building a better society where no one is left behind.

Annamie has a bold vision of what our country could be and unapologetically advocates for change.

She has the experience, temperament, and dedication required to lead the Green Party to new heights. That is why I am endorsing Annamie Paul for leader.

Je suis fier d'appuyer Annamie Paul pour le poste de cheffe du Parti vert du Canada.

On pourrait décrire Annamie comme une personne honnête, passionnée et raisonnable. Je l’ai rencontrée au défilé de la Fierté de Toronto lorsque nous, les Verts, avons rejoint la marche en soutien à ma communauté, la communauté LGBTQ. Annamie me semblait déjà être une leader. Nous avons besoin d'une leader capable de rassembler les gens et de mettre en place une équipe prête à gouverner. Je crois que cette leader, c’est Annamie, et je vous demande de soutenir sa candidature à la chefferie avec moi.

I endorse Annamie Paul with a full heart. We met during the 2019 Federal election campaign. She is a person of integrity, intellect and humanity. As a volunteer on her campaign, I saw first hand as she dedicated herself fully to supporting and advocating for the folks in Toronto Centre. Annamie is a leader who brings compassion with backbone.
