Facebook posts claim seats won by the People's Party of Canada (PPC) in the 2021 federal election were stolen, citing images of a column marked "other" that was removed from a graphic on television. But the company that distributes the TV program said the deleted column did not show PPC seats, and instead represented districts with unreported results displayed on screen due to a computer error.
