Dimitri has issued the following statement concerning the status of his candidacy:
Today (May 26th), I received word that my application to run in the Green Party of Canada leadership race has not been accepted.
I have asked the party's anonymous vetting committee to explain its reason for not accepting my application.
I have appealed this decision. The appeal process will take seven days. Please stay tuned. This is but one more challenge on our long journey toward environmental and social justice.
The campaign will provide an update on this situation seven days from now.
