On September 10, 2020, rabble.ca hosted a Green party leadership candidates debate on Canada's place in the world. For those of you who weren't able to join the livestream, here’s a chance to hear the candidates talk about what they would bring to the leadership of the Green party.
In the next hour and a bit, you'll hear candidates' views on Palestinian rights, Venezuela, NATO, the global climate crisis, as well as the international mining and arms industries. Candidates will also address the global pandemic, Donald Trump, tensions with China as well as the global struggle against anti-Blackness and Canada's second consecutive failure to win a seat on the UN Security Council.
This event was sponsored by rabble.ca and Canadian Foreign Policy Institute, and was moderated by journalist Judy Rebick.
Candidates are: Glenn Murray, Amita Kuttner, Dimitri Lascaris, David Merner, Courtney Howard, Annamie Paul, Andrew West and Meryam Haddad.
Online voting for the new leader of the Green party will begin on September 26, 2020, with results announced on October 3, 2020.
The Canadian Foreign Policy Institute informs people about the country's diplomatic, aid, intelligence and military policies abroad. The nonpartisan organization also monitors corporate Canada's international activities. While Canadians generally believe their country is a benevolent force Internationally, the facts often suggest otherwise. CFPI seeks to bridge the gap between government policy and public perception.
