The Green Party of Canada has dumped its candidate in Glengarry-Prescott-Russell over her views on abortion.
The party said Monday, Marthe Lépine had recently published several online posts expressing views about abortion that did not align with GPC policies.
"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."
There has not been any word about whether or not the party will try to find a replacement candidate on such short notice.
The federal election is scheduled for October 21.
