VICTORIA — British Columbia’s Green Leader Sonia Furstenau says she fired her deputy for liking a social media post that compared provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry to Josef Mengele, an infamous Nazi doctor who experimented on concentration camp victims during the Second World War.

She said Dr. Sanjiv Gandhi’s actions were “unacceptable” and she had also accepted his resignation as the Green candidate in the 2024 B.C. election in the newly formed provincial riding of Vancouver-Renfrew.

“We do not as a party tolerate hateful rhetoric,” she said Thursday at a news conference at the legislature. “This party continues to condemn rhetoric that aligns with extreme or hateful narratives, particularly any minimizing of the Holocaust.”

The Green Party had vetted Gandhi’s candidacy, said Furstenau.
