It's not easy being Green - Elizabeth May may step down as Green Party leader because of toxic anti-semitism in her party

After the Green Party voted to implement an anti-semitic resolution for the boycott of Israel, party leader Elizabeth May told the CBC's Rosemary Barton that she may have to step down as party leader if she can't get the policy reversed soon.
..."I'm struggling with the question of whether I should continue as leader or not, quite honestly," May told Rosemary Barton in an interview with The National.

"I'm quite certain most of our members don't support this policy, but weren't fully engaged in the consensus building process we normally would have had," she said.

"So if I can't find a way to bring that back and have the members review it with a consensus decision-making process, then I have to profoundly question whether I can continue as leader and that's obviously heart-breaking."...

In related news, the BC Green Party has publicly broken with the federal Green Party over thew anti-Israel resolution and denounced it as "a politically motivated movement that damages any attempt at peace" that "represents a significant step away from the values that define the BC Green Party ."
