In this episode, Tom and Michael talk about how the Green Party of Canada has handled the question of Palestinian human rights, and how this issue impacted the tenure of former Green Party leader Annamie Paul. For the past few years the Green Party has wrestled with the question of Palestine, with a series of contradictory statements and positions on the issue. Internal turmoil over the issue boiled over this past summer, and may have contributed to Paul’s premature departure as leader. How has this issue caused so much tension within the party, and could things have been handled differently?
