In this full episode of Andy Oudman’s radio show “London Today” (1290 CJBK AM – London), Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever speaks with Andy about two issues that had emerged in the provincial by-election in London West on July 30th, 2013.

On July 30th, the NDP campaign for candidate Peggy Sattler bought a front page “wrap” ad on the London Free Press which ad depicted poll data in a way that made it appear – falsely – as though the NDP were now leading in the polls for the riding. In addition, e-mails received by party leader Paul McKeever from concerned Londoners led McKeever to research and write a report in which Ontario PC candidate Ali Chahbar asked to clarify whether or not he has ever been a federal Conservative, whether he has been a Liberal supporter provincially, and whether he agrees with the toxic views expressed by his spouse and her “Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights” (SPHR) in 2004 and 2005. SPHR had erected what they called an “apartheid wall”, which they said was an “effigy” of the wall in Israel; they said that Israel was involved in apartheid and oppression (as against Palestinians), and accused Israelis of “genocide”.

After speaking with McKeever about the report, host Andy Oudman gave Chahbar the opportunity to answer the community’s questions about Israel, and the related issue of Sharia law. Chahbar eventually called the station, and expressed outrage that anyone would ask questions involving a candidate’s wife. He did not answer whether or not he agreed with his wife’ views on Israel. Nor did he condemn Sharia: he instead said only that he thinks laws ought to be made by legislators. Callers immediately responded negatively to Chahbar’s evasive response, noting he had not provided a substantive answer to the questions of Sharia and Israel.
