Victoria-The Lakes PC candidate Keith Bain issued the following statement:
“I was deeply troubled and saddened to learn my Liberal opponent in this election, Nadine Bernard, was left to respond to racist comments from another Liberal candidate.
“There is no place for racism in politics or in society. We all have a responsibility to call it out when we see it. I respect the courage of Nadine in speaking out and I want her to know that even though she and I are running for different parties, I stand with her and support her in standing up against these racist comments.”
