Here's my take on Tanya Granic Allen's old comments, on @fordnation's decision to remove @TGranicAllen from #PCPO, and on where we go from here.

Thread 👇
About her "abortion holocaust" comment

I am pro-life & Jewish, and although I wouldn't personally phrase it this way, the fact that once upon a time she did, is a #NothingBurger.
I'm much more offended by the politically correct cowards who pushed Doug to remove her b/c of it
About Tanya's views on gay marriage:

I support gay marriage, yet I understand the position & the arguments of those who once opposed it when it was an issue, which is why I completely reject the notion that their position is based on intolerance or homophobia.
About Tanya's "vomit in disbelief" old comment about Croatia potentially allowing gay marriage:

The comment was distasteful, but she was young and unpolished at the time. She never said anything remotely like that while wearing the PC brand. That's not a reason to remove her.
About Tanya's burqa "dress like ninja" comment:
I'm much more offended on behalf of the women who are forced to "choose" this undignified dress-code, then by anyone who dares to speak their mind, and to say the obvious, that burqas are not & should not be considered "normal".
The decision to remove Tanya was the biggest disappointment & mistake by Doug Ford so far. I'm on the moderate side of the social conservative scale, and yet I feel betrayed by this decision. Imagine how full-scale social conservatives feel.
To me this was a first big step towards Doug downgrading himself in my view to the gutless conservative brand of Patrick Brown & John Tory. Having said that, Doug still can, should, and I believe will never again make a mistake like this.
While I understand the temptation for many grassroots activists to dismiss Doug completely, and to turn against him, I urge you all to give him 1 last chance. He's still by far the best alternative. Nevertheless, the #PCPO must pay for this mistake...
No matter who the appointed candidate for Mississauga Centre is, I propose that we make sure that it's NOT going to be anyone from #PCPO. Let's all encourage Tanya to run as independent. If she decides not to, then we support the local Libertarian or Trillium alternative.
Every moderate conservative #PCPO future MPP must know that if they betray the grassroots, the next time it won't be just 1 seat that's at stake. It will trigger a full scale seat-by-seat swamp-draining. And if that fails, then the grassroots will have to find a new party.
