A Liberal MP and Indigenous Affairs committee member who was accused of mocking minorities in past Twitter comments condemned growing racism in Canada. “One of the most disheartening things that we’ve been seeing across Canada over the past few months is more heightened acts of racism and discrimination,” said MP Jaime Battiste during Tuesday’s committee meeting. “One of the things that Nelson Mandela once said was education was the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
