    In an email sent to members of the party obtained by the Toronto Star, Ms. May says that the green Party will have more credibility as long as an independent investigation has not been conducted. “This means new and unexpected expenditures for the party,” stressed the leader.

    “If you can make a donation, this will certainly be appreciated. I sincerely regret this situation and its impact on the party,” she added.

    The green Party has opened an investigation last week on the doings of his chief, who has been accused of having created a toxic work environment for its employees. Three former employees have told the Toronto Star they had been victims of verbal abuse and emotional on the part of Ms. May.

    The latter had dismissed the allegations, attributing it to “employees dissatisfied.” “This is not all the world who loves me. This is correct, this is the life [but] the important thing is to have a respectful workplace to work together, discuss and continue to work as a team”, she had commented in a press release.
