Maxime Bernier's People's Party of Canada has fired the head of its St. Catharines riding association over alleged past ties to a neo-Nazi group in the United States.

PPC spokeswoman Johanne Mennie confirmed Thursday evening that Shaun Walker, the CEO of the party's St. Catharines association and spokesperson for local candidate Alan deRoo had been fired for not disclosing his past.

"A background check only yielded Canadian results and Mr. Walker did not disclose any information in our 'non-embarrassment' pledge about his past in the United States," Mennie wrote in an email in response to questions from The Standard. "As of today, Shaun Walker is no longer part of our organization."
