LANGLEY (NEWS 1130) – A local Conservative candidate could be dealing with a blackface scandal of her own.
Pictures posted online suggest Cloverdale-Langley City candidate Tamara Jansen took part in an event with people dressed in blackface.
The Conservative Party confirms Jansen was at the event, but denies she wore any makeup.
A social media post suggests the event took place in 2016.
OK, you want to play this game? Let's play this game. I've been sent pics I'm told are from a 2016 event put on by #CPC' candidate Tamara Jansen in riding of Cloverdale-Langley City. I expect a terse, shocked speech from #Scheer will follow? #canpoli #onpoli @TorontoStar pic.twitter.com/w6f9gLs88U
