The Conservative Party told Global News on Sunday that Cheryl Gallant was told to take down videos from her YouTube channel and that she has to fully support all parts of the party's platform or else she will no longer be a Conservative candidate.

The videos in question included one in which Gallant, who is up for re-election in the Ottawa Valley riding of Renfrew—Nipissing—Pembroke, warned constituents that the Liberals are preparing for a "climate lockdown."

A "climate lockdown" refers to governments implementing certain restrictions, like those imposed by governments to limit the spread of COVID-19, in order to curb the long-term effects of climate change.
