Many South Asians in the Peel Region were upset by the ousting of PC candidate Tanya Granic Allen by PC leader Doug Ford. It may be recalled that back when the anti-sex-ed curriculum campaign was underway, many parents looked up to Tanya Granic Allen as an outspoken critic and with her ousting now, many who were counting on her to scrap the current one and replace it with something else now wonder who will champion their cause.
Meanwhile, she is calling her ouster another betrayal of social conservatives.
Granic Allen, a socially conservative parental rights advocate, slammed party leader Doug Ford for ousting her over the weekend and compared him to his predecessor Patrick Brown, who was criticized for distancing himself from social conservative issues.
Ford had turfed Granic Allen on Saturday, saying in a statement that her comments about certain groups were “irresponsible” and don’t represent the views of the party.
Her removal came after the Liberal party released video from 2014 in which she makes inflammatory statements about gay marriage.
Granic Allen, a former Tory leadership candidate, helped deliver the support of social conservatives to Ford when he won the party’s leadership race in March. – CINEWS
