Toronto lawyer Annamie Paul, a Jewish candidate in the federal Green Party’s leadership race, says she’s faced anti-Semitism within the party.
According to figures provided by the party itself, Paul, as of Aug. 31, leads all eight remaining candidates on two key fundraising metrics. She has raised the most money — $186,326 — and has the most contributors — 1,622.
But as popular as Paul has been with many Green supporters, she says there are other Green Party members and supporters who have attacked her – for being Jewish.
“Most of the attacks, most of the online hate that I’ve received has really been targeted at my Jewish identity,” she says.
As David Akin explains, it’s not the first time the Greens have dealt with these types of allegations.
