Ottawa-area MPP Goldie Ghamari was removed from the Doug Ford Progressive Conservative Party caucus on Friday, following "repeated instances of serious lapses in judgement," the party said in a release.

"Today, the premier has made the decision to remove MPP Goldie Ghamari from the Ontario PC caucus, effective immediately.

"This decision follows repeated instances of serious lapses in judgment and a failure to collaborate constructively with caucus leadership and as a team member," the statement continues.

"While this decision did not come easily, it has become clear that MPP Ghamari can no longer continue in her role within our caucus."

The ousting comes after Ghamari posted herself with Tommy Robinson. A post calling for her resignation by the National Council of Canadian Muslims erroneously linked Robinson with the "Islamophobic Norwegian mass shooter who killed 77 people in 2011."

Robinson was recently allowed into Canada but was arrested immediately after giving a speech at a Rebel News event in Calgary by undercover police and uniformed police.

Ghamari replied in a post to X that she condemned all forms of Islamophobia and antisemitism and said she was not aware of Robinson's history.

"I chose to meet with him because I am an Iranian-Canadian immigrant who has been speaking out on behalf of human rights violations by the Islamic Regime in Iran against Iranians in Iran and their attempts to spy and threaten Iranians in Canada," Ghamari said. "He wanted to discuss the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) which was recently listed as a terrorist entity in Canada."

In response to her ousting, Ghamari said "When one door closes, another one opens."
