– Is Pierre Nantel compatible with the Green Party of Canada? –
The NDP has just removed MP Pierre Nantel from its caucus, supposedly for a flirt with the Green Party. Given this odd turn of events we must ask ourselves the folling question: are his values compatible with the Green movement?
Pierre Nantel is known for his nationalist right-wing positions. During the leadership race, he stated that Jagmeet Singh was “incompatible” with Quebec because of his turban. This shocking and discriminatory statement goes against the « vivre ensemble » and respect for ethnic and religious diversity, which are fundamental values of the world wide Green movement.
