Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer says he didn't hear a man mention a widely debunked conspiracy theory while answering questions at a town hall earlier this week.

The federal Opposition leader came under fire from some on social media for not correcting the record when a participant in a Kitchener, Ont., town hall mentioned "pizzagate."

Pizzagate is an unfounded conspiracy theory that claims Democrats in the U.S. harbour child sex slaves at a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant.

The reference came in a rambling question to Scheer that touched on immigration, foreign aid, homelessness and Canada's past donations to the Clinton Foundation.
