The Liberals have dumped a candidate in Quebec after B'nai Brith Canada accused Hassan Guillet of making a number of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel statements.

"The insensitive comments made by Hassan Guillet are not aligned with the values of the Liberal Party of Canada," the party said in a media statement.

"Following a thorough internal review process that has been ongoing for a few weeks, the Liberal Party of Canada has made the decision to revoke the candidacy of Mr. Guillet for the riding of Saint—Léonard Saint—Michel in this fall's election."
