Jenica Atwin, who won the Green Party’s first ever seat in Atlantic Canada in the last election, is now changing colours.
In donning Liberal red, Atwin says there were too many ”distractions” in the Green Party and wanted to work in a more ”supportive and collaborative” environment.
She adds recent party infighting over issues like the recent Israeli-Hamas conflict took her away from the ones she feels matter most to constituents.
Asked if a dispute over party leader Annamie Paul’s public statements about the Middle East conflict prompted her to join the Liberals, Atwin says ”it certainly played a role.”
After defeating Liberal incumbent Matt DeCourcey in Fredericton in the last election, Atwin, Paul Manly and former leader Elizabeth May, gave the Greens their largest caucus ever.
