Green Party Leader Annamie Paul Accidentally Told People To Vote For The Liberals (VIDEO)

Canadians have a reputation for being nice, but Annamie Paul took it one step further when she actually (but accidentally) endorsed the Justin Trudeau Liberals.

During a press conference in Toronto on September 2, the Green Party leader was asked about how credible the Liberal climate plan is. "I'll tell the people of Canada that if you want a real plan, one that is going to grow our economy, that is going to put us at the front of the competitive green economy of the future, help us to join the green rush, then the only option in this election for you is the Liberals," Paul said.

Later, Paul posted a video on Twitter to address what happened earlier in the day and called her accidental endorsement "one for the blooper reels!"

"Well, it was bound to happen. You do one press conference too many without having had your lunch and there you go, saying things that definitely, definitely are good for a meme," she said.

Paul went on to clarify that she meant to say Canadians should vote for the Greens if they want "real" climate action, the possibility of a strong green economy in the future and Canada to join the green rush.

The Canadian federal election was officially called as a minority victory for Justin Trudeau over two weeks ago, but one of the country's ridings has only just been formally decided.

The riding of Chateauguay-Lacolle near Montreal was finally called on Thursday, October 7, for the Liberals in a nail-biting finish that saw the winner decided by just 12 votes.
