I have just read the Islamophobic comments made by the candidate of the Federal Green Party in Lévis-Lotbinière, which were brought to my attention by Xavier Camus. I strongly condemn the comments in question, which are totally unacceptable within the green movement.
I have just checked with the Federal Greens and the candidate will be withdrawn within 24 hours.
On behalf of the Green Party of Quebec, I would like to offer my sincere apologies to all those who were hurt by the remarks of the candidate in question. Let us continue the fight for inclusion and against Islamophobia in all spheres of our society.
Leader of the Green Party of Quebec
