OTTAWA -- The Greens have chosen a nonbinary astrophysicist as the interim leader of their party.

Amita Kuttner, an expert in black holes, was appointed Wednesday by the Greens' Federal Council to lead the party until a new leader is elected next year.

Kuttner, 30, will be the youngest person as well as the first trans person and person of east-Asian descent to lead a federal political party.

.......

Kuttner, who stood against Annamie Paul for the Green leadership last year, has been a vocal advocate for action to address flooding and climate change. Their mother was killed and their father severely injured in a mudslide in 2005 after their North Vancouver home was crushed.

1. I hope

I live long enough where a trans person who is elected or appointed to a position of power is no longer newsworthy.

2. Or of East Asian descent. It would have been news in Canada anyhow. I like

the astrophysicist thing too. I am partial to scientists too.
