OTTAWA—With less than 6 hours until the Elections Ontario deadline to drop a candidate from the ballot, Ford has continued to support embattled Conservative candidates Andrew Lawton and Merrilee Fullerton.
Lawton has made headlines in recent weeks for his intolerant remarks on both his personal social media and on air with comments such as:
“I know typically most minorities in the United States, black and Hispanic minorities, have a higher arrest rate simply because the crime rate in those groups is higher.” (December 17, 2015)
Fullerton has been under fire and refused to apologize or even address her racist comments, like:
Instead of apologizing for their hateful comments, both candidates are standing their ground and Doug Ford has stood right by them.
Ford still has time to do the right thing.
