Liberal candidate Karen Wang has quit the Burnaby South byelection race over comments she posted on social media about NDP leader and candidate Jagmeet Singh.
In a WeChat post, Wang wrote that as the only Chinese candidate, she could beat Jagmeet Singh, who she noted is of “Indian descent.” Singh is Sikh.
“Recent online comments by Karen Wang are not aligned with the values of the Liberal Party of Canada,” said a statement from the party.
“The Liberal Party has a clear commitment to positive politics and support for Canadian diversity, and the same is always expected of our candidates.”
The Liberal Party uses multiculturalism and diversity to divide and conquer. They are the very toxic symbol of the success of identity politics.
