NDP MP Olivia Chow once again doesn’t let the truth stand in her way. This time, she gets caught pushing lies to the media about cut-backs to youth programs and border services in a disgusting attempt to pin the recent Toronto gang crime on the Conservative government.
This from a press conference with another NDP MP Andrew Cash:
The government should reverse planned cuts to border services, provide stable funding for youth programs and come up with a strategy to deal with gun smuggling, the pair said.
Only problem is that there has been no reduction in federal funding of the Youth Gang Prevention Fund, gun related homicides are down 28% and there have been no border patrol cuts (see here).
If Chow and Cash had an ounce of shame, they would immediately issue an apology and if Thomas Mulcair wants to be a leader, he would haul them on the carpet for using death as a political tool to spread lies.
