The B.C. Conservative Party has cut ties with a Denman Island doctor whose licence was suspended in 2022 for signing mask and vaccine exemptions and making statements contradicting the regulatory college, just hours after announcing his candidacy this week.

The party described Stephen Malthouse on its website and social media accounts as a “seasoned family physician” in a March 27 announcement of his candidacy in the Ladysmith-Oceanside riding. By evening, all posts related to Dr. Malthouse had been deleted.

Dr. Malthouse is not the first candidate to be dropped by the B.C. Conservative Party this year.
The party named Jan Webb as its candidate for Esquimalt-Colwood in a Jan. 1 Instagram post. While that post remains online, her profile has been removed from the party’s website and platform X account.
