The Jewish member of Canadian Parliament whom Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused of standing with 'swastika wavers' has spoken out to demand an apology, saying he is driving divisions in the country.

'He has not apologized, and I expect an apology,' MP Melissa Lantsman said in an interview with Fox News. 'I think the division in this country is growing and it's growing because of the prime minister's rhetoric on this.' 

Lantsman, a 37-year-old Conservative MP for the Toronto suburb of Thornhill, had confronted Trudeau in Parliament on Wednesday over his invocation of the draconian Emergencies Act to crack down on the Freedom Convoy protests against vaccine mandates.

Liberal Party leader Trudeau responded with scorn to her complaints, saying: 'Conservative Party members can stand with people who wave swastikas, they can stand with people who wave the confederate flag.' 

'We will chose to stand with Canadians who deserve to be able to get to their jobs, and get their lives back. These illegal protests need to stop and they will.'

Trudeau's comments were sparked uproar in the house, and forced the Speaker of the House to reprimand him and others, reminding them of rules against using 'inflammatory' language in Parliament during the debates.

After being reprimanded, Trudeau refused to apologize and again repeated that the blockades were illegal, and the measures to repress the protests were necessary.  

Lantsman said in the interview on Wednesday night that Trudeau was showing his 'true colors' with his denigrating remark.  (more...)
