Tanya Granic Allen, who vied for PC party leadership is currently seeking a party nomination in Mississauga Centre. Meanwhile she has gotten herself into a storm of her own making following incendiary comments made about gays and Muslims on social media.
Granic Allen, a parental rights and anti-abortion advocate, has denied that posts and tweets in which she suggests gay marriage shouldn’t be legalized in the United Kingdom and women should not wear burkas in public, reflecting Islamophobic or homophobic views.
Her online comments dating back to 2013 and 2014 have been condemned by the Liberals and New Democrats, and Tory Leader Doug Ford has distanced himself from her.
Ford maintains that her sentiments do not reflect his views or those of the party. – CINEWS
