Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer was left to defend another of his would-be MPs on Saturday after two Liberal cabinet ministers posted a video they say shows his star candidate has a close friendship with a far-right political activist banned from Facebook for spreading hate.

Justina McCaffrey, a well-known Ottawa wedding dress designer, introduced Scheer outside her suburban campaign office and hugged him as he stepped off his tour bus with his family in tow.

But before the event was over, McCaffrey jumped into a car and refused to answer questions from reporters. Her campaign barbecue continued with Scheer posing for selfies and shaking hands with supporters despite her absence.
