The Liberal candidate which has distanced herself from her rapidly sinking party by choosing to not have them listed on her signs, is in the news again.
This time for comments she made rejecting the typical theories held around 9/11 and for spreading literally fake information.
The Markham city councilor posted the following on her Facebook, according to a new report by Ipolitics.
“911, was it really a terrorist attack or another conspiracy for cover up? As soon as it happened back in 2001, I thought: ‘how can the US Defense be so weak? I thought the US had LET it happen so they can declare war,” Amanda Yeung Collucci wrote on Facebook on Sept. 11, 2012.
Why Do Poorly Timed Past Comments Count?
Normally, they do not. People are allowed to move on from past beliefs. But the Liberal party in Ontario has taken a belief disqualification strategy. Asking individuals to continuously drop out based on past comments.
While continuing this strategy they have chosen to continuously support the Markham city councilor. For this reason, these comments matter.
The Liberal party is attempting to do everything possible to distance themselves from previous scandals, but this low level of action should not continue.
If one parties candidates should resign due to poorly timed comments, so should all of them.
