WATCH: Wynne says she accepts candidates social media apologies
Liberal candidates post sexist material on Facebook
2 0

Some questionable social media comments made by Liberal candidates in Ottawa, Niagara and London have derailed talk of policy.

Premier Kathleen Wynne had to answer to questions about sexist Facebook posts that compared the differences between the male and female thought process and showed images of a woman's posterior. Wynne says they've apologized and removed the posts.

A third post on Twitter showed a candidate claiming he was"mackin’ on ladies".

She says it serves as a warning to anyone on social media to watch what they write and underlines these sort of things are unacceptable for any party.

But Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak says he wants to know why the premier isn't doing more.

Hudak wants to know why she's keeping these candidates on. He points to when he fired Windsor-area candidate Dave Brister, who spoke out against Hudak's push against unions.

PC MPP Vic Fedeli says this shows the Liberals are having a tough time finding quality candidates.

    Wynne of course first had to ask "what IS social media? myspace? Freindster? hard drives? email?"

    This is a minor infraction compared to the Liberals "stealing", continual lying, mismanaging and bribing voters, so why should we be surprised?
