Vancouver South heats up over Malik endorsment scandal
The Conservative Party is insisting it's not dodging questions about the controversy swirling around a candidate in Vancouver South.
Wai Young wouldn't answer questions from reporters yesterday about allegations she received an endorsement from Ripudaman Singh Malik.
Malik was charged and acquitted in relation to the bombing of Air India.
Tim Powers of the Conservative Party is defending Young.
"You're suggesting she's dodging the question. I think she thinks she and the party have given an answer by putting out two statements, one by her and one by the Conservative Party talking about their disdain for all things Malik."
Liberal candidate Ujjal Dosanjh says he's made complaints to Elections Canada and the BC Ministry of Education.
Powers was speaking on the Bill Good Show with Simi Sara.
More fallout from the Malik endorsement
Vancouver South Liberal candidate Ujjal Dosanjh says he's heard allegations the vice president of the Conservative Riding Association is an associate of Ripudaman Singh Malik.
"There are rumours out there that the riding vice president is well-known to Mr. Malik, is an associate of Mr. Malik, and has -- according to himself -- worked with Mr. Malik for a long time."
This would appear to conflict with Wai Young's claim her campaign has no links to Malik -- one of the men aquitted in the Air India bombing case.
Wai Young replaced Hu Jintao with Harper?
