Tanya Granic Allen no longer a candidate for Ontario's PC party
PC leader Doug Ford has announced that Tanya Granic Allen is no longer a candidate for the Ontario PC Party.
In a statement released late Saturday afternoon, Ford said:
"We are a party comprised of people with diverse views that if expressed responsibly we would respect. However, the fact is her characterization of certain issues and people has been irresponsible. Our party remains focused on defeating Kathleen Wynne and bringing relief to families across Ontario."
The move comes after the Ontario Liberal Party shared a video earlier in the day of Granic Allen sharing views the Liberals described as ``hatred and homophobia.''
The video, which was edited and posted on the Liberals' website, shows the social conservative Granic Allen discussing sex education.
She says when sees Croatia ``trying to push radical sexualization on the young, or gay marriage, I almost vomit in disbelief."
Granic was a Ontario PC candidate in Mississauga Centre and also ran for leadership of the party, but was defeated by Ford in March.
She is best known as a social conservative and a parental rights activist.
