Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet apologized Thursday after media outlets uncovered a number of Islamophobic and racist social media posts by candidates running for the sovereigntist party.

"They all regret having shared in the past videos or messages containing inappropriate comments," Blanchet said in an emailed statement.

"They apologized. As leader of the Bloc Québécois, I add my apologies on their behalf to the entire population of Quebec."
