geezaz! Green party takes battle with leader Annamie Paul to court...  Green party feud with its leader reignites as executives seek to overturn arbitration in court - they claim an arbitrator exceeded his authority in requiring executives to cancel their non-confidence vote against Annamie Paul as well as a review of her party membership:

Green party bleeding cash amid legal battles with Annamie Paul

The Green party is poised to shell out hundreds of thousands of dollars on legal battles with leader Annamie Paul, worsening an already rough financial situation as a federal election nears.

 The pricey legal proceedings are tilting an already steep cash imbalance, with the head of the Green Party of Canada Fund stating earlier this month that the "current financial situation is not sustainable."

The money woes prompted staff layoffs as well as cancelled funding for Paul's Toronto Centre riding campaign, and come amid ongoing power struggles in a divided party.

Two sources say that fund president Douglas Tingey told council members yesterday the Greens would have about $300,000 in the bank if an election were called next month, compared to $1.9 million at the outset of the 2019 election and $3 million when the writ dropped in 2015.
