Scheer Should Boot MP For Quoting Terrorist's Manifesto In Committee: Witness - 2019-06-02
OTTAWA — A Muslim anti-racism activist, who was berated by a Conservative MP last week, says Andrew Scheer's response is far from adequate and that Michael Cooper should be booted out of caucus if the Tory leader is serious about showing racists the door.
Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council president Faisal Khan Suri told HuffPost Canada that while he hasn't seen Cooper demonstrate any racism, he believes the way the St. Albert—Edmonton MP behaved "seemed that he had a very bigoted and extremist viewpoint."
"I would request Mr. Andrew Scheer to make the right move and to really, actually, have Mr. Cooper removed from caucus. It is detrimental to have such leaders part of any party, and part of Parliament. It's dangerous to have such a person there," he said, in a phone interview Saturday night.
