      People's Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier hasn't always been a fan of the Canadian media. But he's never advocated for them to be killed.

      One of his former candidates, however, has posted something on Facebook that might have some journalists scratching their heads.

      Marcella Desjarlais uses her Facebook page to protest the mandatory masking of children.

      This weekend, she posted an Internet meme mentioning that journalists were put to death following the Nuremberg trials for lying to the public.

      Then she added this comment: "Should happen again!"

      The post was taken down on October 3.

      Desjarlais is also known as Marcella Williams, and ran under this name for the People's Party of Canada in the 2021 election.

      She came fourth in Burnaby South with 3.3 percent of the vote in a riding retained by NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh.

      Below, you can see some of the discussion on social media that followed her now-deleted post.
