Elizabeth May – Worse than Hitler, way worse say staffers

Three former Green Party staffers accuse Elizabeth May of workplace bullying

OTTAWA—Three former Green Party staffers are accusing longtime leader Elizabeth May of workplace bullying, alleging she has created a toxic work environment with conduct that includes yelling at employees and putting them down in front of their colleagues.

Rob Rainer, a manager of six non-profit organizations before he served as the party’s interim executive director in 2014, said the Green Party has failed to address and prevent a pattern of “verbal and emotional” abuse by the 63-year-old leader.

“What I witnessed was her proclivity to be negative and — most seriously — to berate, belittle and bully individuals,” Rainer said. “How we speak to other people can really, really hurt.”
