An Ontario PC candidate promoted a controversial alt-right website that has a well-documented history amplifying some of Canada's most toxic and racist personalities during an event for young conservatives in Hamilton last Christmas.

A photo from the event shows Donna Skelly, a former CHCH broadcaster turned city councillor who is currently running for Doug Ford's Ontario PCs in the Hamilton-area riding of Flamborough-Glanbrook, waving a red hat displaying the words 'Free Bird Media' – an imitation of Donald Trump's 'Make America Great Again' hat.

Except 'Free Bird Media' is an alt-right website whose video archives are filled with hours of speeches and interviews featuring prominent figures on Canada's far-right, including two men recently charged with hate crimes.
