B.C. Tory MP deletes tweet on 'closeness' of George Soros, Chrystia Freeland - 2020-08-29
B.C. MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay is facing criticism after claiming that Canadians should be disturbed by the "closeness" between Canada's finance minister and George Soros, an internationally known philanthropist who is frequently mentioned in far-right and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
On Saturday morning, Findlay shared another user's tweet featuring a video of Chrystia Freeland, a former journalist, who was conducting an interview with Soros regarding former U.S. President Barack Obama and China.
"This is George Soros with Canada's new Finance Minister a few years ago listening carefully to him like student to teacher. The closeness of these two should alarm every Canadian," she wrote.
