Ontario’s Progressive Conservative leader says he will support a Liberal MPP’s anti-Islamophobia motion and hopes his caucus will do the same.
Refusing to wade into the debate over a similar motion in the House of Commons that has exposed divisions with federal Conservatives, Patrick Brown said “we will always condemn any form of hate.”
“What those of the Muslim faith have to go through right now it horrible…Quebec was a wakeup call that it does happen,” he added, referring to a recent fatal mosque shooting.
Smart. Very, very smart. Why?
1. It’s just a resolution, not legislation.
2. It reflects what’s been done many times in the past, on anti-Semitism, etc.
3. It smartly avoids falling into the trap the CPC fell into.
Waiting for this guy to make big mistakes – the Gandalf the Wizard strategy, apparently – isn’t going to work.
This is yet more proof.
