Quebec Tory MP Withdraws Racist Comments

Quebec City-area MP Daniel Petit has retracted his comments that Quebec's treatment of immigrants helped inspire school shootings in the province and that's good enough, said Jason Kenney, ethical giant of the Conservative Party and Parliamentary Secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

"The member for Charlesbourg has recognized that those comments were inappropriate," Kenney told the House of Commons. "Which is precisely why he has retracted the comment."

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Harper severely criticised a newspaper columnist for comments similar to Petit's. Once again we see Conservative double standards at play in Canada's political arena.
