Statement from Melissa Lantsman

JULY 25, 2021


THORNHILL, ON –  Today at Peter Kent’s Annual Summer celebration I answered various questions from a number of outlets, including from David Menzies. When Mr. Menzies’s line of questioning became homophobic and related to my sexual orientation, I ended the interview.

Afterward, I spoke to some constituents but ultimately left the event because I felt unsafe. Thankfully no one was hurt today.

I’m very confident that any investigation will demonstrate that I acted appropriately and with the utmost respect. I have not engaged with the authorities, nor did I call them.

Melissa Lantsman
