The People's Party of Canada (PPC) has lost five of its Winnipeg members over allegations the federal party is harbouring racists, anti-Semites and conspiracy theorists.

In an open letter to PPC Leader Maxime Bernier posted online, party members of the Elmwood-Transcona riding wrote that they were excited for a "principled alternative in Canadian politics."

"The biggest problem we face locally, though, are our own supporters," the letter reads, claiming that PPC supporters "spread disinformation and distrust online via their personal and sometimes official party channels."
