NDP candidate Morgan Wheeler was immediately fired after the Conservatives exposed his anti-Israel posting:

Earlier today, Brad Lavigne, an NDP campaign adviser, said Wheeldon’s position as reflected by the Facebook post didn’t reflect the party’s position.

“Our position on the conflict in the Middle East is clear, as Tom Mulcair expressed clearly in the debate. Mr. Wheeldon’s comments are not in line with that policy and he is no longer our candidate,” he said. 

“We were made aware of some information that had not previously been disclosed. When we approached Mr. Wheeldon with this information, he submitted his resignation.” (see here)

Yet the NDP have allowed Matthew Rowlinson to remain:


To Thomas Mulcair, not all Israel-haters are equal.
