Andrew Scheer is refusing to deny the Conservative campaign hired an ex-Liberal operative to dig up dirt on a political rival.

The Conservative leader was asked repeatedly Saturday morning to confirm or deny his party hired Warren Kinsella, a consultant and former Liberal staffer, to launch a covert social media campaign against the People's Party of Canada and its leader Maxime Bernier.

"We don't make comments on vendors that we may or may not have engaged with," Scheer said at a press conference, responding to the allegations first reported in the Globe and Mail Friday night.
