Conservative Candidate Promoted Idea Earth Was Created in 6 Days, Cast Doubt on Evolution and Climate Change - 2019-09-23
A Conservative candidate, currently under fire for hosting a blackface Christmas pageant, also promoted blogs purporting to show science supports the idea earth was created in six days. At the same time, she cast doubt on Darwinian evolution and climate change research published by NASA scientists.
Cloverdale-Langley City's Tamara Jansen has been in full damage control mode this week after photos surfaced of a racist "Black Pete" Christmas pageant hosted in 2016 at a greenhouse owned by the Conservative candidate.
Conservative officials were quick to defend Jansen, who runs a plant nursery out of her Langley greenhouse, noting she did not personally wear blackface even though she attended the annual Christmas event hosted at her greenhouse for years.
