In a stroke of bad luck for Michael ignatieff he still has disgraced racist candidate Andre Forbes running under the Liberal party banner . Because Mr. Forbes did not formally drop out elections Canada cannot take his name off the ballot.
The Liberal leader booted Quebec candidate Andre Forbes from the party last week for once describing aboriginal people as “featherheads” and questioning their work ethic.
But Forbes did not pull out of the race and will remain a Liberal on the ballot in the northern Quebec riding of Manicouagan.
A spokesman for Elections Canada says the Liberals cannot run another candidate as long as Forbes’ name is on the ballot.
This should be a case study in why background checks are of paramount importance. In addition here is Forbes in his own words it is disgusting this man does not deserve to run for any public office.
