Star liberal candidate quits race over Justin Trudeau’s lie

“I cannot, in good conscience, campaign to be a part of a team of candidates if others seeking to join that team are prevented from doing so if their ideas or ambitions run contrary to the party leader’s interest,” Zach Paikin, 22, wrote Monday.
