MPP Joel Harden releases statement

TORONTO – MPP Joel Harden released the following statement regarding comments he made in an interview in August, 2021:

“I would like to apologize unreservedly to the Jewish community for comments I made during an interview with the Ottawa Forum on Israel Palestine. I spoke in a way that perpetrated an antisemitic stereotype towards Jewish neighbours. I regret my choice of words and sincerely apologize to the Jewish community. You have my commitment that it won't happen again and I will continue to work with Jewish leaders who can help me understand antisemitism.”
