A UCP candidate has been forced to resign as a result of this exchange.
“When the perpetrator is an Islamist, the denunciations are intermingled with breathless assurances that they do not represent Islam, that Islam is a religion of peace, etc.,” Ford wrote.”When the terrorists are white supremacists, that kind of soul-searching or attempts to understand the sources of their radicalization or their perverse moral reasoning is beyond the pale.”
The CBC reports as follows:

Later in the exchange, Ford said: “I am somehow saddened by the demographic replacement of white peoples in their homelands.
“It’s clear that it will not be a peaceful transition,” she said.
Late Monday night, after PressProgress published its story about the messages, Ford announced on her Facebook page that she is giving up her bid for a seat in the Alberta Legislature.
“To avoid becoming a distraction in this campaign, I have decided to resign as the United Conservative candidate in Calgary-Mountain View,” she said.
It is obvious that any expression of concern for white people or white civilization is both offensive and unacceptable if you want to run for office. This has become a firing offence. We live here, but we have no rights to the expression of pride in our accomplishments or concern for our fate. Why is this?
Dalwhinnie: The candidate in question, Caylan Ford, has a Master’s degree from Oxford. Some redneck from Alberta.
The email exchange was leaked by a newsagency associated with the Broadbent Institute. Its statement in the Who we Are section says:
“The Broadbent Institute is Canada’s leading progressive, independent organization championing change through the promotion of democracy, equality, and sustainability and the training of a new generation of leaders.
When a white guy slaughters people, we take at face value he is doing it in the cause of white nationalism. And we would be correct in that conclusion. When a jihadist slaughters people in the name of Islam, the same people urge us to think that Islam has nothing to do with it, whereas in fact the same jihadist would be at home watching television but for the jihadist urgings of the Koran. More and more people cannot be prevented from observing this disparity.
