The commissioner of elections has dismissed a Conservative complaint that the Liberals violated election law by releasing an edited video of Erin O'Toole's views on health care.

The Conservative party had asked Yves Cote to investigate whether the edited video clip of their leader constituted a violation of the Canada Elections Act prohibition on misleading publications.

The video, posted by Liberal Chrystia Freeland during the opening week of the campaign, was labelled "manipulated media" by Twitter.
