BC Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson says he was embarrassed and appalled by comments a party candidate made about the NDP's Bowinn Ma.

But Wilkinson says he did not feel he needed to say anything to Jane Thornthwaite during an online roast about remarks that have been widely condemned as sexist.

He was peppered with questions today about why he laughed at the comments that Ma says sexualized her relationship with retiring M-L-A Ralph Sultan.

Wilkinson says that there's no place for those kind of sexist remarks in society and he apologized to Ma.
