That image, as you can probably guess, is from CTV Edmonton. They posted it on their Twitter feed earlier today. Whoo boy.

A post says the comments come from a radio interview with the Wildrose Party candidate. What question the host could’ve asked to elicit this kind of answer, I can’t imagine. Maybe “What’s a terrible thing you could say during a political campaign?”

CTV also posted some of Wildrose leader Danielle Smith’s reaction:

“I think that every candidate puts forward their best argument for why they should be the person who can best represent the community,” Smith said at a campaign event.

Smith said she believes Leech made his comments to illustrate his ability to reach out to people from different backgrounds.
