How foreign policy shaped election outcome

  The Canadian foreign policy status quo won Monday’s election. Of course, when it came to international and military affairs the vote had little upside. All the parties with a chance of winning seats in Parliament promote a corporate, military and Washington-centred foreign policy. But a Conservative victory would have made things worse. At least...

Paul chooses personal over Green policy and party pays price

  Annamie Paul’s refusal to answer a question about Israel at the election debate was a reminder of her staunch anti-Palestinianism. But an omission in the Green Party platform is an equally loud comment on her international ideology. During the recent French language election debate Paul was asked about Green Party members challenging Israeli colonization.... Continue Reading →

Why won’t any party challenge Canadian foreign policy?

During the first month of the election campaign the discussion of international and military affairs has been dismal at worst and non-existent at best. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix to the problem that requires a profound shake up in the popular understanding of Canada’s place in the world. A number of liberal minded foreign...

Far right rallies behind Annamie Paul

Was Annamie Paul’s plan to unite the far right and the Green Party? Because, incredibly, that seems to be what’s happening. And stranger still is how some self-professed progressives have let identity politics blind them to anti-Palestinian racism. Last week Annamie Paul’s lawyer convinced an arbitrator to stop the Green executive council from applying its... Continue Reading →

More attacks on Palestine solidarity from Green party leadership

Annamie Paul’s team have once again smeared Green MPs and party members as anti-Semitic for opposing Palestinian dispossession. These ongoing attacks are part of the Green leader’s broader commitment to Canadian imperialism. Last week Paul appointed Richard Zurawski to her shadow cabinet. Three weeks earlier the new party critic for Green Recovery publicly denounced “BDS terrorists”... Continue Reading →

The smear campaign at the centre of Green debacle

  Last week Annamie Paul added a new chapter to her deception in service of Israeli colonialism and fidelity to Noah Zatzman. On Tuesday the Green party leader told the Globe and Mail that the federal council of the party no longer required her to repudiate Zatzman’s anti-Palestinian smears and threats against Green MPs (as...

Conservative and Liberal media defend Green leader as she accuses her critics of racism

Last month Montréal saw some of its largest ever protests by racialized communities. On May 15 upwards of 10,000 came out for Palestinian rights with about 80% of those participating from an Arab or other racialized background. The racial makeup of the protests in other cities wasn’t dissimilar. Alongside those taking to the street, huge... Continue Reading →

Annamie Paul’s failure to confront international racism

  Annamie Paul and her supporters are right to cite racism as a driving factor in her leadership crisis. But the Green leader’s supporters have misplaced the source of responsibility. It is Paul’s inability to view colonized peoples, notably Palestinians, as deserving of equal rights that is the source of her current troubles. As the... Continue Reading →

Green Party debacle may be win for Palestine

Score an own goal for Green Party pro-Israel extremists Noah Zatzman and Annamie Paul. Not only are they responsible for the Liberals adding an MP to their caucus, one of their own they slandered as “anti-Semitic” for labeling Israel an “apartheid” state, but also saw to it that millions of Canadians heard mention of Israeli...

Green division over Palestine could net NDP 2 MPs

Green party leader Annamie Paul is a competent, well spoken, social democratic politician. She’s also fanatically anti-Palestinian. In her devotion to the apartheid state, Paul is giving two thirds of the Green party’s parliamentary caucus every reason to join the NDP. On May 14 Paul’s senior adviser Noah Zatzman posted a message to Facebook stating:... Continue Reading →
