As the province nears a May 30 vote~~ Should questionable social media posts automatically spell disaster if someone wants to run for office? Stephen McNeil doesn’t think so. He says candidates can overcome past online transgressions, but they need to be up front about them. His party dropped a candidate when offensive tweets that were written several years ago were brought to light, but the Tories and NDP were affected, too.  Too date; Jad Crnogorac (PC), Matt MacKnight (Liberal) and Bill McEwan (NDP) are all out of this provincial election after questionable social media posts they made in the past were brought to light.
