Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says a woman who posted offensive tweets as a teenager has done the right thing by stepping down as a Liberal candidate. Ala Buzreba was the 21-year-old candidate for the Calgary-Nose Hill riding in Alberta. Trudeau praised the former candidate during a stop today in Winnipeg, saying she is taking responsibility for her actions taken as a teenager. (Buzreba was running against Conservative junior cabinet minister Michelle Rempel. She issued an apology yesterday, after some tweets she posted four years ago began re-circulating online.)
