The Conservative Party of Canada is putting the final touches on an anti-harassment policy that's to apply to candidates in the October election.

The party promised a code of conduct for its candidates in response to a report on how former Conservative MP Rick Dykstra remained on the ballot in 2015 even after party insiders — including former prime minister Stephen Harper — learned he had earlier been accused of sexual assault.

Dykstra, who represented the southern Ontario riding of St. Catharines for nearly a decade, has denied doing anything wrong.
