An Ontario Superior Court judge has ruled that Jim Karahalios should be reinstated as a candidate for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada's leadership race, after he was forced from the race over a claim of racism.

A committee of Conservative Party members kicked Karahalios out of the race in March after leadership candidate and MP Erin O'Toole called for his disqualification.

O'Toole alleged Karahalios made what the court documents call "racist Islamophobic remarks that besmirched the expressed principles of the Conservative Party" in reference to O'Toole's campaign chair, Walied Soliman.
