British Columbia: A spokesperson for mosques and Islamic associations that called for former post-secondary education minister Selina Robinson to be removed from her post, says they approve of her decision to step down.
Bilal Cheema says Robinson is welcome to meet with members of the community to discuss the harm that her comments have caused.
Robinson has been under heavy pressure for days after saying that Israel was founded on ”a crappy piece of land,” leading to outcry from pro-Palestinian groups and others.
Robinson repeatedly apologized, but Premier David Eby said her remarks were incompatible with her remaining in cabinet, although she will stay in the N-D-P caucus.
