Derek Duval, of Vankleek Hill, says he has been disqualified from tomorrow's Glengarry-Prescott-Russell Conservative nomination convention because of a video shot "in good fun" years ago.
Mr. Duval says the last-minute decision came after party officials thought a pile of poutine shown being eaten off a hockey stick was a hamster. Plus, the person in the video isn't him.
Mr. Duval, son of long-time Vankleek Hill councillor Paul Emile Duval, charges the real reason was that party leader Patrick Brown wants Amanda Simard, a Russell councillor, to be the Tory standard-bearer in the next Ontario election.
Here is Derek's Duval FB post:
