Embattled former Liberal candidate Karen Wang held a chaotic press conference on Thursday in a bid to clear the air around a social media post that ended her candidacy.

Wang stepped down as the Liberal candidate for Burnaby South on Wednesday, a day after a post to social media app WeChat that highlighted her Chinese background in contrast to NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, "of Indian descent."

Wang claimed the WeChat message was posted by volunteers on her team, because she was busy preparing for her campaign launch.
