He wrote about his outrage, linking racist rhetoric with violence and directly referenced Barrie-Innisfil MP John Brassard and Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte MP Alex Nuttall, calling on them to denounce white supremacy.

The post reads in part, "We have two Conservative MPs in Barrie that have been silent on their leader's appearance on the same stage as a neo-Nazi sympathizer. This is unacceptable and it is dangerous. They are playing footsies with white supremacists who have inspired violence through Yellow Vest Canada social media channels and elsewhere."

Brassard responded immediately by filing a complaint against the Ward 2 Councillor.
