Jason Kenney Must Apologize for His Racist and Divisive Policies of the Past


Jason Kenney Refuses to Apologize for his Racist and Divisive Policies of the Past 

Jason Kenney was a senior federal cabinet minister, who supported and served as a key architect in the Conservative Government’s hate-driven niqab ban. He also stood by as his Conservative government promised to create  a “barbaric cultural practices'' hotline. These Conservative policies helped perpetuate the spread of anti-Muslim hate.

Now, fellow members of that Conserative Government are apologizing for these policies and have openly stated they spurred anti-Muslim hate.

Jason Kenney has also been asked to apologize. He refused and instead lied about his involvement.

All across Alberta and Canada, we have seen an increase in anti-Muslim hate and violent attacks against Muslim Canadians. It is time for the Premier to own up to his past mistakes, apologize and pledge to do better.  

When you add your name below an email will be sent directly to Premier Jason Kenney demanding an apology for his involvement of the Niqab Ban and "Barbaric Cultural Practices" Hotline.

Premier Kenney, you were the architect of racist and divisive policies, while serving as a Senior Minister in the Federal Government.

Some of your former Conservative colleagues have already apologized for their actions and for supporting these racist policies. You have outright refused.

I am writing to you today to ask you to take responsibility for your role in creating and your support of the Niqab Ban and the proposed “barbaric cultural practices'' hotline.

Furthermore, you must apologize for lying to all Albertans about your position on these policies.
