A Hamilton-area Ontario PC candidate is drawing fire after a photo has surfaced of her holding a red hat advertising a right-wing website that gives a platform to white nationalists.

Donna Skelly, who is also a Hamilton city councillor, was photographed at a Hamilton conservative Christmas formal that included Mohawk and McMaster University Conservatives. In the photo, she's holding a red and white hat that says Free Bird Media.

The Facebook post, made by a Free Bird Media correspondent, thanks Skelly "for the shout out." Founder Alex Van Hamme was a guest speaker at the event.
