An internal report circulated within Ontario's Progressive Conservative party in the fall of 2016 says that Ghada Melek, this year's federal Tory candidate for Mississauga-Streetsville, made a number of homophobic posts on Facebook that played a role in her eventually dropping out of the nomination race.

Melek was seeking the PC nomination for her riding (also called Mississauga-Streetsville) at the time and dropped out just days after the report was prepared.
