Cooper statement on Charlottesville
Today, UCP Interim Leader Nathan Cooper released the following statement on the violent clashes and car-ramming in Charlottesville:
“The hatred founded in white supremacy, fascism, and neo-Nazism that is occurring in Charlottesville is deeply distressing, and has no place in our society.
“Here in Alberta, we must be unequivocal in denouncing hate and bigotry. We must not turn a blind eye in our own province towards attempts at fear and division, including the alt-right movement.
“I commit to using my platform to be a voice for inclusion and tolerance, and ask Albertans to join with me in doing the same.”
