Frank de Jong to step down as leader of Ontario's Green party

By THE CANADIAN PRESS






TORONTO - The Green Party of Ontario is looking for a new leader.

Frank de Jong, who has headed the party since 1993, has announced he will be stepping down.

The 53-year-old de Jong says holding the party's top job for the past 16 years through four general elections has been "profoundly challenging and rewarding."

Deputy leader Judy Smith-Torrie says de Jong has been the embodiment of Green values and lifestyle.

The party is expected to begin the formal nomination process for a new leader in the next few weeks

so it looks like all 3 of ontario's main opposition parties will have new leaders by 2011 election . think there realising they ahve few options or ways to build interest or take on the liberals , other than by having leadership races that energise there parties and sign up new members .

This should be an interesting turning point for the Green's.

Will they opt for the Elizabeth May Martyr type leader, or the David Chernushenko type who could potentially have the party taken seriously?
