A Winnipeg-area candidate running for Andrew Scheer's Conservatives has stepped down following the discovery of the candidate's secret Facebook account which contained "discriminatory social media posts."

Cameron Ogilvie's since-deleted bio on the Conservative Party website notes that "Cameron has a love for people of all ethnic backgrounds" and "loves learning about different cultures."

But Facebook postings newly unearthed by PressProgress show Ogilvie often shared content on anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim themes.
