Olivia Chow’s statement to reporters, delivered just before Question Period.
I appreciate Mr. Anders’ concern of Jack’s health and his death. There is nothing I wouldn’t do to make Jack live longer. So to all conspiracy theorists, cancer is unpredictable, is vicious and it kills. Let’s put aside the theories and let’s work for a cure of cancer.
Unity and loyalty are in the DNA of the New Democrats. Like all the other NDP members of parliament, Tom Mulcair loved Jack. We’d rather put all our energy in fighting for a better world, a better Canada, and not stab each other in the back.
I do accept Rob Anders’ apology.
