Winnipeg mayoral candidate expected to address wife’s racist remarks Tuesday

APTN National News
A racist rant on Facebook by his wife four years ago has threatened to derail Gord Steeves’ mayoral hopes in Winnipeg.

On Friday he made a campaign promise to crackdown on public intoxication downtown with a greater police presence.

Then an anonymous Twitter account posted some remarks Steeves’ wife made on her Facebook in 2010 telling “drunken native guys” to get a job and stop begging for change.

APTN’s Melissa Ridgen has the story.
