Two NDP candidates have decided to suspend their campaigns after they were accused of posting antisemitic remarks on social media.
Toronto—St Paul’s candidate Sidney Coles and Cumberland Colchester candidate Dan Osborne made the decision to resign after apologizing for their remarks in recent days.
“These two candidates have resigned and ended their campaigns. They have agreed to educate themselves further about antisemitism,” said NDP spokesperson George Soule in a statement Wednesday morning.
“New Democrats stand united against discrimination of all kinds. We are committed to taking lasting and meaningful steps toward ending prejudice and hatred in all its forms.”
