The People's Party of Canada candidate in the Winnipeg North federal riding has resigned after deciding the party is "racist and intolerant."

In an email statement sent to the Free Press Tuesday, Victor Ong — "the son of Asian immigrants" — said he was resigning, effective immediately.

"Admittedly, the PPC paradigms are a little radical/right for my comfort level," Ong wrote. "Still, up until recently, I would have never considered this party (at its core) racist and intolerant.
