Andrew Scheer and members of his Conservative caucus attended and spoke at the Yellow Vests Convoy rally in Ottawa. Attendees of the rally included white nationalist Faith Goldy and members of prominent far-right anti-immigrant hate groups.
Scheer delivered a speech at the rally, assuring participants the “we’re fighting for you. We’re standing with you.”
The Convoy has been plagued by controversy as it made its way from Alberta to Ottawa.
The Conservative Party of Canada is “tough on crime.” Its website even has a section dedicated to this stance.
Log on and behold the enormous black gavel pounding the bottom of the webpage, and right beside it, behold the capitalized phrase itself: “TOUGH ON CRIME” (in case you aren’t already convinced these guys mean business).
The strange thing is that for a party so tough on crime that it states its position in capital letters, its leader is arguably less than tough when it comes to a force that drives crime: hate.
