Canadian Home Speaker Anthony Rota resigns after Nazi honour controversy

Following a firestorm of criticism and requires him to step apart, Speaker of the Home Anthony Rota has resigned after he paid tribute to a Ukrainian-Canadian who fought with the Nazis throughout a particular session of parliament final week to listen to from Ukraine’s president.

It’s an incident that has put the worldwide highlight on our nation for all of the improper causes.

Canada’s parliament rising in unison to cheer and clap for a member of the Waffen SS was an embarrassing second for our nation, and a painful one for Jewish communities from coast to coast.

After apologizing yesterday, Rota was nonetheless dealing with mounting criticism and requires him to resign for inviting Yaroslav Hunka to the Home of Commons. So immediately, he did.

For extra, we spoke to Gustavo Rymberg, the CEO of the Hamilton Jewish Federation.
