Conservative MP Defends Giving ‘Community Hero Award’ to Controversial Anti-LGBTQ School Trustee

A Conservative MP from British Columbia is defending his office’s decision to bestow a “community hero award” to a local school trustee with a well-documented history of making anti-LGBTQ statements.

Mark Strahl, Conservative MP for Chilliwack–Hope, extended the award to local school trustee Barry Neufeld this weekend in recognition of his work “going above and beyond” to make Chilliwack “a better place during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
