Disgraced B.C. NDP candidate Dayleen Van Ryswyk is choosing silence after she was dumped by the party after "hateful" comments she made against First Nation and Francophone Canadians surfaced Tuesday.

Van Ryswyk was confronted by CTV reporter Kent Molgat at her constituency office and was immediately stonewalled.

Looking visibly shaken, Van Ryswyk proceeded to walk to her car without acknowledging Molgat or his cameraman.

“I want to refer you to provincial office, they’re handling all media on this,” said Van Ryswyk’s handler to Molgat.

Van Ryswyk was forced to resign her bid for Kelowna-Mission on Tuesday after racist comments she made about First Nations in a 2009 online forum titled "Strip Them of the Status Card." The posts were revealed by the B.C. Liberals in a news release on Tuesday.

B.C. NDP are currently looking for another candidate to replace Van Ryswyk.
