Elizabeth May and the Green Party of Canada are on thin ice right now as the Party recently adopted an official position on Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel and Israeli-made goods.
For many on the left, BDS has been a mainstay in their opposition to the democracy of Israel.
It’s no secret that the more extreme wings of the NDP and Liberal Party have sympathy for this movement, but this does mark the first time a political party in Canada has officially taken this stance.
As a result, May’s leadership is in doubt.
Though she opposed the resolution, she was unable to stop the membership of the Green Party from passing it.
Watch as I discuss what could happen and what should happen in the event that May leaves.
My advice to anyone looking to lead the Green Party of Canada after May?
Ditch the BDS policy and try to emulate what Jim Harris did and make the Greens a party for more than just earth mothers and hippies.
