TORONTO — The Conservative Party says a man seen making prank calls in several online videos — including one where he pretends to have a mental disability — is no longer a candidate.
The party says Tim Dutaud is the same person in the videos posted on YouTube and will no longer be running in the riding of Toronto-Danforth.
News of Dutaud being dropped from the Conservative slate comes as Prime Minister Stephen Harper promised to improve disability grants if re-elected next month.
It also came just hours after the party announced that a man who was reportedly caught on camera urinating into a coffee cup while working as an appliance repairman was no longer a candidate.
More to come.
