Canada's Conservative Party facing a challenge in the polls dump a candidate who strongly criticised Islamofascism and apologised for the negative opinion on the religious women's headcovers.
Candidates tried to defend the dignity of a woman emphasising their right to choose whether they wanted to cover their head or face in public. But such an approach caused trouble in the polls for the Canadian party after the mainstream media labeled it as Islamophobia.
The Party leaders decided to change the course and follow the mainstream culture trend of multicultural indifference. That does not stress the Constitutional rights of the citizens in this context.
A Tory candidate in Nova Scotia apologized for social media posts that weighed in on sharia law and backed banning the burqa worn by some Muslim women.
In the past I have shared social media posts without thinking about how these posts might hurt or offend others, Central Nova candidate Steven Cotter said Saturday in a statement provided by the party
I have deleted these posts and apologize unreservedly to those I have offended, he added.
On Friday, when the Tories launched their latest GTA tour in Mississauga, Ont., the Conservative party confirmed they had dumped Beaches-East York candidate Lisa Robinson after the riding’s Liberal incumbent, Nate Erskine-Smith, highlighted Islamophobic tweets from 2017.
We’re running a positive campaign based on bringing the country together and getting the country back on its feet from an economic point of view. And I want people on my team to share that, O’Toole said Saturday.
