OTTAWA -- The fallout from internal feuds in the Green party continues amid accusations of intolerance and strong-arm tactics against some members.
The adviser, Noah Zatzman, had expressed solidarity with Israel in a May 14 social media post that accused many politicians, including unspecified Green MPs, of discrimination and antisemitism, sparking a letter-writing campaign calling for his removal.
Separately, two party executives recently announced they would step down early, including John Kidder, a vice-president on the party s governing body and husband to MP and former leader Elizabeth May.
The resignations open up more space for a slate of new candidates for executive positions in a party that has undergone growing pains and power struggles over the past couple years.
