At an event in Ottawa, the Green Party of Canada announces the results of its election to choose a new leader. There are eight candidates vying to replace Elizabeth May, who announced in November 2019 that she was stepping down as leader after 13 years. The party cancelled its plan to hold an in-person leadership convention in Prince Edward Island due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Martin Stringer hosts CPAC’s coverage.
