Statement by Deputy Premier Heather Stefanson denouncing Linda Sarsour's inclusion on a panel put on by the Social Planning Council of Wpg

April 28, 2019

On April 24, two days before anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour spoke at the Ukrainian Labour Temple, Heather Stefanson, MLA for Tuxedo, Minister of Families and Deputy Premier of Manitoba made a statement on twitter denouncing Sarsour. "I stand with the Jewish Community in denouncing the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg’s inclusion of Linda Sarsour as a panelist at their Friday, April 26 event. It is never acceptable to allow for the willful promotion of hatred; it is unconscionable to provide a platform to such a divisive speaker while senseless acts of hatred, violence and brazen antisemitism continue to afflict our neighbours."https://twitter.com/Min_Stefanson/status/1121104487781928963
