"I am re-inspired by Glen Murray's entrance into the Green Party leadership contest. Greens choose leaders who are earnest and wise and who are the best people for the upcoming step for our party and for the vital role the GPC plays in the global Green political movement. I wholly believe Glen is the best person to be our next leader and Canada's next prime minister. His comprehensive political experience at the municipal level as the respected mayor of a capital city and at the provincial level as a responsible cabinet minister in multiple portfolios makes him ready to govern. Glen was already a Green in government and, like many other past party leaders and members, ultimately chose to end up with the party that truly represents his values and hopes for others."
