"The crisis has highlighted the importance of delivering supports to people who need them,â€� said New Democrat Finance Critic, Peter Julian. â€œWhen looking at their numbers, some will dig out the old calls for deep cuts, but we canâ€™t let the government make things worse for people struggling to get back on their feet. We have an opportunity do things differently. We can stop the very rich and large corporate CEOs from using offshore tax havens, we can make the ultra-wealthy pay just a little bit more, and we can build a fair system for everyone across the country.â€�
NDP Critic for Canadian Heritage Peter Julian issued the following statement:
"It has come to our attention that a consultant for a federally funded anti-racism project has a disturbing track record of spewing hate speech online against Jewish and francophone communities. This is completely unacceptable. We call on the Minister of Heritage to take drastic action and terminate his contract.
