Controversial federal Conservative leadership hopeful Kellie Leitch has fired another Twitter-based salvo that rips into the heart of sanctuary cities wanting to protect vulnerable undocumented people.
And London and its expansion of its transit dreams are right in her crosshairs.
“One law for all is a Canadian value,” Leitch tweeted. “ ‘Sanctuary cities’ will be ineligible for transit funding if I am PM.”
Coun. Jesse Helmer, a proponent of the city’s $560-million bus rapid transit plan, fired back.
“I look forward to you losing the (Conservative) leadership race,” he tweeted. “Trying to hold (London) and other (Canadian municipalities) hostage won’t work.”
“I do appreciate you being clear about your priorities.”
