Coun. Harold Usher, the lone visible minority on London city council, says he won’t support the push by a group called the London Multicultural Community Association, which says it needs the cash to study the “feasibility” of creating a job-creation centre for immigrants.
The group’s director, Deeq Abdi, says Usher’s resistance is rooted in a personality clash between them.
“It’s a vendetta because I supported someone who ran against him,” Abdi
told The Free Press, later adding: “He’s not black enough.”
That comment — certain to stun some, coming from a person representing multiculturalism — didn’t draw a fiery reaction from Usher.
