Ontario PPC candidate published racist, transphobic tweets - 2019-09-25
The People's Party of Canada candidate for the Essex riding responded to racist and transphobic posts published on his Twitter account earlier this spring, saying "I apologize for any remarks I made that were taken out of context and may have offended anyone."
In one of the tweets, published in March of this year, Bill Capes said "Yellow people been working since 5am, black people up at noon. Lol."
Capes initially denied the tweets, saying it was possible someone might have hacked his account.
