Another day, another controversy for the Wildrose Alliance Party of Alberta.
Yesterday, Calgary candidate Russ Kuykendall was sent packing after it emerged he had written a blog post criticizing a gay pride event that was held in a Catholic church hall.
Today, Drumheller-Stettler candidate Rick Strankman is apologizing after a poster advertising an "Old Fashioned Pie Auction" encouraged people to "Bring Your Wife's Pie."
Strankman tweeted an apology for the poster, blaming it on volunteers.
“I apologize for our poster. It was posted by our volunteers through my account. As soon as I saw it, I asked them to take it down #abvote"— Rick Strankman (@RickStrankman) April 16, 2015
But that hasn't stopped it from drawing accusations of sexism and mockery on social media.
What does Rick Strankman have against cake, cookies, brownies, etc. anyway? Bakedgoodsauvinest!— CatelliNQU/IT Monkey (@Catelli_NQU) April 16, 2015
BRING YOUR WIFE'S PIE! Come on, that can't be for real. https://t.co/ZxNn9ZqbFu— Emmett Macfarlane (@EmmMacfarlane) April 16, 2015
It also helped generate the hashtag #BakeofFire, which only produced more hilarious tweets.
Here are some more tweets posted under the #BakeofFire hashtag:
