Italian: Apologies to Italian Canadians
Montreal’s weekly source, II Cittadino Canadese, reports:
Montreal’s Italian-Canadian community is still trying to figure out why did it lose the Liberal Party of Canada nomination in Saint-Léonard/Saint-Michel for the first time in 35 years. Tony Sciascia, President of the National Congress of Italian Canadians-Quebec Region, said Italians should be angry not with the Liberal Party but with former MP Nicola Di Iorio, who took sides among Italian candidates and split the community. Hassan Guillet, the candidate who eventually won, was good at organizing, resulting in many Italians voting for him. Regarding the apologies to the Italian community for the treatment of some of its members during World War II, Italians should remember that the Conservatives blocked past attempts to reach an honourable solution. At least with PM Justin Trudeau, there is a commitment to issue an apology after the election. (26/06/19)
