MNA calls metro incident "intolerance"
D'Arcy McGee MNA Lawrence Bergman says a recent altercation with a metro ticket-taker is an incident of intolerance.
"This is intolerance. There's no excuse for that in our society," says the MNA, whose riding represents people in Côte Saint-Luc and Hampstead.
A metro rider says she was assaulted by an STM employee after she addressed the worker in English. The agency denies that language was at the heart of the altercation.
Bergman says the story is upsetting. "It's the task of all politicians on all sides of the house to speak to moderation, to speak to tolerance, to speak to being understanding."
