The website of Nova Scotia's Progressive Conservative Party's caucus has been hit by hackers who altered the page's Google search result to feature advertisements for erectile dysfunction medication.

The summary for the website stated it had the "best Viagra price," featured generic Levitra and Cialis ads and offered online orders.

The website was hacked Tuesday and the caucus shut down the site, replacing it with a plain, non-interactive site. 

PC Leader Jamie Baillie was keeping a sense of humour about the incident.

The caucus has not said who hacked the site or if they are pressing charges.

A spokeswoman for the caucus estimates that the temporary site will be in place "for a while."
