The Liberals had to disqualify a candidate just before the campaign began after B'nai Brith accused him of making anti-Semitic statements.

A Conservative candidate in Winnipeg stepped down after the party became aware of comments it called "insensitive to Islam and some ethnic groups." And they're now facing questions about another candidate who was disqualified from running for the Ontario provincial Tories because of what that war room deemed "extremely controversial and problematic" social media posts.

New Democrats have lost two candidates this week, one to allegations of domestic abuse and another due to "problematic social media engagement."

And the Greens lost their candidate in Simcoe North over anti-Muslim social media posts.
