Elizabeth May staying on as Green leader

first_imgOTTAWA – Elizabeth May will remain Green party leader despite a controversy over the Middle East that divided members and prompted her to consider stepping down.The party will revisit a convention resolution to support a movement to boycott Israel, along with any other recent policy decisions that lacked genuine consensus, May told a news conference Monday.Meantime, May will focus on her work as a member of a parliamentary committee studying options for remodelling Canada’s electoral system before the next national ballot in three years.“This is a decision that I think the party needs as we build our strength, and as I work on electoral reform and we prepare for 2019,” May said.At the party’s recent convention, members voted to express support for the so-called boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel _ a move May opposed and which Jewish groups swiftly denounced.May has blamed the resolution’s passage on the process _ brief statements followed by a majority vote rather than the party’s time-honoured approach of a concerted effort to arrive at consensus.During Monday’s news conference, May called the party’s recent troubles a “teachable moment” and said her belief in consensus decision-making applies to both how the party forms policy and national electoral reform.“Consensus decision-making works better than winner-take-all decision making. It will work better for the electoral system of Canada and it worked better for the Green party of Canada,” she said.“So what I’ve decided is that the reasons for staying are far more compelling.”May spent the last several days pondering her future during a vacation in Cape Breton.She firmly squelched suggestions she was considering joining the NDP or the Liberals. “That was never even a consideration.”May said she was “overwhelmed to read so many letters of support” from Green members, non-members and fellow MPs.Media commentary made her feel like Mark Twain’s Tom Sawyer, attending her own funeral. “It appears I am much loved _ it’s surprising to find sometimes in politics.”last_img read more

Napoli lacked intensity says Ancelotti

first_imgNapoli manager Carlo Ancelotti has slammed his side for their lack of intensity in their goalless draw against Chievo on Saturday.Despite dominating possession and controlling the game, Napoli failed to break down a struggling Chievo side, and manager Ancelotti was frustrated with his team’s performance.“This game is a good test to understand what we are going into on Wednesday against Red Star Belgrade,” Ancelotti said in a press conference after the game. [via Football Italia]“It could be a very similar approach from the opposition, so dealing with this now can be helpful. There wasn’t enough intensity today, especially in the first half. After the break, we had more of a push, but the spaces were too tight.Sacchi explains Sarri, Conte, and Ancelotti Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…“We were too bland in everything we did, from the attack to build-up play to defending. This allowed Chievo to play the kind of defensive game they wanted to.“We’ve already put it behind us, as we ought to worry about these games beforehand, not after they’ve already concluded.“There’s no point looking at the Serie A table now. We’ll look and evaluate only at the midway stage.”last_img read more
