A would-be Ontario politician says his candidacy was killed by the party because of an old video in which someone is alleged to have eaten a hamster off a hockey stick.
"Seeing no other outcome than me winning the nomination, the party made the decision to disallow my candidacy — using the flimsy excuse of a video I was part of many years ago," Duval said.
Here's the hamster/poutine in question.
And here's a gif version.
The whole thing has people confused.
At least this came out just in time to make all the year-end lists of "weird Canadian shit that happened in 2016."
