Steve Bannon debate widely criticized as platform for populist fascism

The federal NDP is calling on organizers of a Toronto debate series to cancel an event that is set to include U.S. President Donald Trump's former strategist Steve Bannon.

The party said having Bannon participate in the Munk Debates is inappropriate after the death of 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue this past weekend. 

"I ask the Munk Foundation to cancel its invitation out of respect for the victims in Pittsburgh," NDP MP Charlie Angus told CBC News, in French.

Yves Engler
The NDP should withdraw from the Canada-Israel Interparliamentary Group to send a message that the State of Israel is currently on a path that is unacceptable to the NDP and its members.
