A Hamilton school trustee running in the federal election for the New Democrats has apologized for making a crude reference related to Auschwitz, reportedly saying she had no idea that it was a notorious Nazi death camp.
In a Facebook note, Alex Johnstone conceded she should not have made her remarks.
“Attention was recently drawn to a comment I posted on social media seven years ago,” Johnstone said. “While never intending any malice, this comment was clearly inappropriate. I would like to offer my unreserved apology.”
Seriously, the only thing she is guilty of is ignorance, in other words an ideal NDP Candidate.
