A second Liberal provincial candidate has had to apologize for what is being termed “inappropriate” content on his Facebook page.
Niagara West-Glanbrook candidate David Mossey took down what some who saw the photo are describing as a picture of a woman’s behind.
“It was an inappropriate picture,” Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne told reporters May 12 during a campaign stop at the Stoney Creek campus of Mohawk College. Wynne was told of the post earlier in the day by her staff.
“I had a conversation with the candidate. He acknowledged it was an inappropriate picture,” Wynne said.
On his personal Facebook page, Mossey issued a public apology and the photo has been taken down.
“I exercised poor judgment,” he stated on his Facebook page. “But it was certainly not my intent to offend anyone. As I told the premier when I apologized to her, I am proud to be a candidate for a party that has a strong record of standing up for the rights of all women.”
A message was left with Mossey seeking further comment.
Last week the Liberal candidate for Nepean-Carleton, Jack Uppal apologized for a posting a 500-word “analysis” on his Facebook page about how men and women differ on issues including language, skills, problem solving and driving habits. For instance, he wrote that “men cannot easily learn languages while women can’t “find solutions to problems.”
Mossey, who the Niagara West-Glanbrook Liberal riding association nominated in March, is attempting to unseat long-time Niagara West-Glanbrook MPP and party leader Tim Hudak.
