Green Party of Canada members have chosen Toronto's Annamie Paul as their new leader.
Paul won a bare majority of votes in the eighth round, defeating Dimitri Lascaris.
Paul, who is Black and Jewish, took the microphone in an Ottawa art gallery after her win was announced and declared herself the descendant of slaves and an ally of those, such as Indigenous people, who are fighting for justice.
