UBC experts on Elizabeth May resignation, U.S. election, Safe Third Country Agreement

Elizabeth May announced her resignation as federal Green Party leader this morning.

Meanwhile, the U.S. is exactly one year away from the 2020 election and President Donald Trump’s attempt to get re-elected, and Canada’s Safe Third Country Agreement with the U.S. is being challenged in federal court.

UBC experts are available to comment.
