Green Party MP Jenica Atwin crosses the floor to join Trudeau Liberals

Green Party MP Jenica Atwin is crossing the floor to join the Liberal Party, Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc confirmed on Thursday.

She was elected to represent Fredericton, NB in the 2019 federal election, defeating the Liberal incumbent MP Matt DeCourcey.

The news comes amid months of infighting within the Green Party which has recently focused around the different views of members on the conflict between Israel and Hamas. Speaking Thursday, Atwin called this infighting a “distraction.”

“It’s a good day. I think this is a positive thing for my community. The past month I’ve been at a crossroads. It’s been, in a word, distracting. So I’m going where I can do the best work for my community,” she said.
