Third can­di­date with­draws be­cause of old post­ings

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

In­ap­pro­pri­ate, sex­ist and ho­mo­pho­bic lan­guage left lin­ger­ing on the In­ter­net has been ex­act­ing a toll on the list of po­lit­i­cal hope­fuls in Nova Sco­tia’s elec­tion, with a third can­di­date forced to with­draw Tues­day. The Tories sent out a terse news re­lease Tues­day af­ter­noon not­ing that its can­di­date for Dart­mouth South, Jad Cmogo­rac, was be­ing dropped be­cause of her so­cial me­dia post­ings. The with­drawal came a day af­ter CTV News pub­lished ex­cerpts from the Bullpen web­site of Dart­mouth East can­di­date Bill McEwen, a youth­ful prospect for the NDP.
