Federal Green Party of Canada deputy leader Adriane Carr is stepping down from the position to concentrate on her re-election bid to Vancouver city council.
Carr has been deputy leader of the federal party since 2006, and has run in past provincial elections as the provincial party leader.
She was first elected to Vancouver city council in 2011.
“It’s been a lot of work, a lot of fun, and immensely satisfying to know I have made a difference in moving our party forward,” said Carr in a press release.
Carr has often been credited with increasing popularity of the party in B.C., which led to the election of its first MLA, Andrew Weaver, in the 2013 provincial election.
