I have been contacted by a CBC reporter who has told me that they have recordings secretly made at my firm in the Spring. The recordings are about anti-racism work we did. We’re really proud of that work.
Here’s a summary of what I said to this reporter.
We do not discuss client matters publicly. It is up to the client to make public the relationship.
But I can say we have proactively reached out to Elections Canada and disclosed everything we did up until June 29, 2019, when our work ended – as the law requires.
I have proudly been exposing and opposing racism for more than 30 years. Daisy Group has also exposed and opposed racists, anti-Semites, Holocaust deniers, Islamophobes and misogynists for many years. Many people and organizations seek us out to assist them in opposing hate.
I have proudly been exposing and opposing racism for more than 30 years. As a political assistant, in 1990, I documented known white supremacists joining Preston Manning’s Reform Party. In 1993, I documented Kim Campbell’s inadequate response to the presence of actual neo-Nazis in the Canadian Airborne Regiment. In 2000, as a political advisor, I documented the presence of known racists in Stockwell Day’s Canadian Alliance.
After lots of research, I concluded none of those leaders were in any way racist. However, their parties had a problem in those days, which was well-known.
But the extremism found in the People’s Party of Canada is far worse, and far more pervasive, than anything I experienced before.
We were, and are, very proud to shine a light on the many extremists found in the People’s Party of Canada.
