One of Conservative leader Andrew Scheer's backbench MPs has deleted a tweet spreading false information accusing the parliamentary secretary to Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs of celebrating an "Islamic" takeover of Canadian politics.

Thursday morning, Conservative MP Blaine Calkins tweeted a screenshot from a discredited 2005 blog post accusing foreign affairs parliamentary secretary Omar Alghabra of being an "overt Islamist."

The 2005 blog post was published by far-right blogger Daniel Pipes, President of the Middle East Forum, an anti-Muslim think tank which has provided funding to Rebel Media's Ezra Levant – Pipes was even a guest on Levant's 2016 "Rebel Cruise."
