After giving thought to a request from a group of Liberals to cross the floor and run for their party’s leadership, Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner says he’s staying put.

The Ontario Liberals have been without a permanent leader since Steven Del Duca stepped down last year following a second consecutive devastating election loss for the party.

Deb Matthews, Liz Sandals, and current Liberal caucus member Lucille Collard were among a group of Liberals that urged Schreiner to join their party and run for the top job in a public letter last month.

Following extensive consultation with residents of Guelph and other parts of the province, Schreiner stated on Tuesday that he has come to the conclusion that leading the Greens will allow him to have the greatest impact.

Schreiner says he doesn’t think he’s lost credibility as Green leader for even considering crossing the floor, because people have told him they appreciated how he handled it.

Numerous Liberals, including MP and former Ontario cabinet minister Yasir Naqvi, MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, and current Ontario Liberal caucus member Ted Hsu, have publicly stated they are considering a run for the top position.
