Gatineau mayor slams councillor's comments on Muslims

Gatineau mayor slams councillor's comments on Muslims GATINEAU, Que. - The mayor of Gatineau, Que., said he plans to request that a city councillor be stripped of some of her duties after she reportedly said the word "Islamophobia" doesn't exist for her. Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin said in a statement late Friday that he's distancing himself from Nathalie Lemieux and will ask city council to replace her as deputy mayor. "The role of the city is to bring together communities to promote a better understanding of one another, (and) we won't succeed with words that polarize this much and that harm the city in its role in as discussion partner for all the communities," he wrote.

Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps wants to make one thing clear: she is not on Facebook.

So if you've seen a Facebook page that was briefly online and seemingly from the mayor of B.C.'s capital, it was a phony — but a phony Helps was so concerned about she had city staff reach out to the social media giant to pull it down.

"The fact that they're using my picture, that they're using the banner that's on my Twitter feed, and they're actually even writing like me, with positivity and exclamation marks, it is very worrisome," Helps said in council chambers Monday.

January 29, 2019," Daniel Smith says as he looks into the camera, wearing a toque and bundled in a heavy winter jacket. "This cold weather and this snow is unbelievable up here in Canada," he continues, his face hiding an incoming, gargantuan smirk. "It's absolutely ridiculous, the amount we have to shovel here. Got my snowblower going. It is freezing out. I hope everyone's safe." And then, the reveal: "I just wanted to show everybody what it's like to shovel snow in Victoria, B.C. in January," he says as he ... revs up a lawnmower. "What snow? Come on, suckers! I'm out. I gotta finish mowing my lawn.

Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps says she resorted to using her middle name as a last name to re-activate her Facebook account. She wonders if she was perhaps targeted by somebody claiming her account was fake . "As a public figure people like to take swipes at me any way they can," said the mayor .

"It's really troubling that somebody would use this tool, I think, to spread false information.

"It's completely unacceptable."

The page had several posts purportedly from the mayor, proposing, for instance, the city convert some of its churches to mosques.

Some of the comments on the page's posted pointed out the page was a phony. Others seemed to play along. Others, the mayor noted, were racist in nature, particularly on the one about churches and  mosques.

"There was some sharing and comments," the city's head of engagement, Bill Eisenhauer, said. "It certainly looked like some people did believe that it was an actual site from the mayor"

The page went online sometime on the weekend and was pulled down by Monday afternoon, Eisenhauer added.

"Someone had let [the mayor] know," he responded, when asked how it was discovered. "We checked it out and reported it  immediately to Facebook ... they took steps right away.

Helps said the page went beyond satire.

"It's a deliberate spreading of misinformation speaking in my voice. That's very different," she said.

Helps deleted her Facebook account back in March 2018 as part of the online #deletefacebook campaign that urged people to sign off the platform for good.

She previously ran into a snag with her online presence in 2016 when she was previously blocked for using her real name. Facebook eventually remedied the situation.

"Facebook is a toxic echo chamber," Helps said Monday. "The fact that, on Facebook, somebody can actually become me, look like me, sound like me, with no repercussions until we tell Facebook ... I think there's a problem with that social platform."

Helps says anyone who wants to reach her can call her on the phone, email her or message her on Twitter.
