Green Party Removes Candidate Over Social Media Posts

OTTAWA - Today the Green Party of Canada (GPC) removed Marthe Lépine as its candidate for Glengarry–Prescott–Russell. Lépine had recently published several posts expressing views about abortion that did no align with GPC policy.

“The Green Party will always fight for access to timely, safe, legal abortions,” said Green Party Director of Communications John Chenery. “It recently came to light through social media posts that Ms. Lépine does not support this position so she has been removed as a candidate.”
