During the 2019 federal election campaign Jonathan Richardson left the New Democratic Party of Canada (the “NDP”) and joined the Green Party. At that time, there was public discourse concerning the race and religion of the leader of the NDP, including statements made by Mr. Richardson. In comments responding to Mr. Richardson’s statements and his decision to leave the NDP, the NDP did not intend to suggest that he or his family are, themselves, racist and, for this reason, the NDP retracts these comments.
