#CANADA: BLM-Supporting City Council Candidate Mocks Dead Police Officer

[world politics news] 

An Edmonton, Alberta city council candidate and Black Lives Matter advocate celebrated the death of slain Calgary police officer Sgt. Andrew Harnett on Twitter earlier this week, only days after his passing. 

According to the Post Millennial, in a reply to a Tweet eulogizing the young officer’s passing, Abdulhakim Dalel called the young Sgt. a “corrupted Police Officer!” [sic] before posting laughing emojis. 

Dalel has been quoted by multiple news outlets over the years to talk about issues pertaining to racism, including in the Toronto Star and BlogTO.

Dalel is now running for Edmonton City Council for Ward 7. He also ran for the NDP's nomination in the Federal riding of Edmonton Griesbach in 2015, but lost to Janis Irwin, who subsequently lost to Conservative MP Kerry Diotte.
