The founder of the right-wing Canada Proud online advocacy network has joined MP Erin O'Toole's campaign team for the upcoming Conservative Party leadership contest.

Jeff Ballingall made a name for himself in Canadian political circles when he founded Ontario Proud and later Canada Proud, social media groups—with a presence on Facebook and Twitter, as well as a website—that post content denigrating Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (Papineau, Que.) and advocating for conservative policies and politicians. Those groups are followed by thousands of Canadians.

The Proud organization has also raised money through donations.
