Correction (February 8, 2024): This episode originally described Susan Kim as a member of British Columbia’s Legislative Assembly, and suggested that Premier David Eby allowed her to continue in her role after she apologized for casting doubt on the use of sexual violence by Hamas. Kim is in fact a Victoria city councillor who added her name to a late-October open letter that made reference to “the unverified accusation that Palestinians were guilty of sexual violence.” While Municipal Affairs Minister Anne Kang called on Kim to apologize (which she subsequently did), and declined to call for Kim’s resignation, Premier Eby himself did not weigh in.
