Canadian comedian Rick Mercer took to Twitter this week to call out a B.C. federal election candidate, after a quote was falsely attributed to him saying to vote Conservative.

Last week, the Conservative Burnaby North-Seymour Constituency Association Facebook page shared an image of Mercer with text urging people to vote Conservative. Their candidate for the riding is Heather Leung.

"Take 20 minutes out of your day and do what young people all around the world are dying to do. Vote Conservative," the quote attributed to Mercer reads.
