Maryam Monsef is the worst cabinet minister ever to serve in a Canadian government. 

Candice Malcolm says that calling the Taliban “our brothers” is the stupidest thing that a Canadian politician has ever said. It’s disgraceful, it’s ignorant, it’s a slap in the face to all Canadians and especially to the women of Afghanistan. 

Given the opportunity to walk it back or apologize, Monsef refused. She instead doubled down and then tripled down on her ignorant comment, claiming it was a “cultural” statement.

There is nothing cultural about calling terrorists “our brothers.”



We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
