New Democrats are Not Happy With U.S. Election Results

Federal New Democrats are urging Prime Minister Trudeau to stand up to U-S President- elect Donald Trump. MP Sheila Malcolmson takes issue with some of the sexist remarks  made by Trump during the campaign. She says we are doing a lot of work to encourage woman to run for office, to support and celebrate more diversity in legislatures and parliament, to then see there is a huge personal cost fir woman running for office and they get scrutinized in a different way. Malcolmson states, Canadians don’t approve of some of the remarks made by Trump during the campaign. “To see this played out in such a public way, to have sexists, racist, taunting disabled people…to have Trump do all these things and still see him take presidency is very worrying to me,” Malcolmson continues. She says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will have his hands full having to set the tone, and stand up to the Presidents for our country. Trudeau offered his congratulations to Trump and says he’ll work with the new administration.
