The NDP’s PR assault against the UCP shows no sign of relenting, as new details have surfaced about the past of United Conservative Party candidate Jeremy Wong.

Wong, who is running as Jason Kenney’s replacement candidate in Calgary-Mountain View, allegedly praised and promoted a conversion therapy program called Living Waters, which is a debunked practice using harmful tactics aiming to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

In 2013, Wong praised the “Living Waters” conversion therapy program, saying “Living Waters is a program that provides just what we need… I have encouraged many church members to attend.”
