Bremner tweeted @DonDavies :”Today Don Davies said that because I am a Filipina-Canadian woman running in federal politics that I am being exploited. Let me be clear: Don Davies is wrong and I vehemently reject what he said. I am a strong, capable, and proud Filipina ready to represent Vancouver-Kingsway.

“To claim that I lack agency to make my own decisions is sexist, racist, and rife with white privilege. It is an insult to me and all women and women of colour in politics.
I believe in positive politics. It is a shame that Don Davies, who claims he is a progressive ally, has chosen this divisive and cynical route.
Women of colour deserve to partake in the political process without having their agency and ability to make their own decisions questioned.”
