Marthe Lépine has been dropped by the Green Party of Canada as its candidate in Glengarry-Prescott-Russell because of her stance against abortion.

But her name will be on the ballot because the decision came too late.
The 77-year-old Russell woman had posted on a blog that as a Catholic she felt abortion "should be avoided."
