Former NDP MPP deletes tweet comparing Toronto bridge to Auschwitz
TNC: 'Former NDP MPP and “Queer Evangelist” Cheri DiNovo has apologized for remarking on Twitter that the entrance to the Queen Street Viaduct in Toronto looks like the entrance to the Auschwitz concentration camp.
'“I know it wasn’t intended but doesn’t this remind you of the entrance to Auschwitz?” said DiNovo in a since-deleted tweet on Monday.
'DiNovo included a photo of the entrance to the Queen Street Viaduct, which has lettering reading “The river I step in is not the river I stand in” and a clock.
'The infamous entrance to the Auschwitz concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Poland shows a gate reading “Arbeit macht frei,” or “work sets you free.”'
