New Green Leader Paul says she’s been invited to run in ridings across the country, as she sets sights on Toronto Centre byelection

By Abbas Rana      

'If Annamie Paul could win a riding on her own, based on her own work, and her own accomplishments, and running a good campaign, that will really put wind in the sails of the Green Party movement in Canada,' says pollster Nik Nanos of Nanos Research.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has fixed Oct. 26 as the date for the byelection in Toronto Centre. Candidates are: Annamie Paul, left, Green Party; Marci Ien for the Liberal Party; Benjamin Sharma for the Conservative party; and Brian Chang for the NDP. The Hill Times file photographs and Twitter

New Green Party Leader Annamie Paul, who made Canadian political history last week when she was elected as the first Black person to lead a major political party, says she has received invitations from Green riding associations across the country to run as their candidate if she is unsuccessful in her bid to win the Toronto Centre byelection on Oct. 26.
