Green Party Leader Annamie Paul says she’s hopeful the massive societal impacts of the coronavirus pandemic will spur a lasting change in Canadian politics — including getting more people to vote Green. In an interview with The West Block‘s Mercedes Stephenson, Paul looked ahead to the coming year and her plans for a potential federal election after an unsuccessful byelection bid late last year to win a Toronto Liberal stronghold. “This is a year, 2020, that has changed so much. It has transformed our society, it has really caused us to wake up every day saying, what is a life worth?” she said. “And I think that is changing every part of our society — including politics — and in some good ways, I hope.”
