A three-time Québec solidaire candidate says he’s leaving the left-wing party after it adopted a resolution to nominate only women and non-binary people as candidates in future byelections.

Olivier Bolduc, who describes himself as a feminist, says the resolution goes too far and won’t achieve its desired goals.

The former candidate says he thinks the policy, which remains in effect for one year, will prevent the party from making gains if people like him feel unwelcome.
