Manitoba’s Green Party will pick a new leader at its annual general meeting Nov. 15 to replace James Beddome, the party said today.
Beddome resigned last year after five years as leader to pursue a law career.
Under Beddome’s leadership the party fielded 32 candidates and slightly increased its percentage of popular vote in the 2011 election, but fell well short of winning any seats. Following the election the Greens toyed with the idea of merging with the Liberal Party of Manitoba.
The party’s interim leader is Alain Landry.
