Conservative senator Leo Housakos says he believes white supremacy is not a threat. Housakos comments came after numerous, deadly acts of far-right terrorism in recent years — including the murder of a protestor in Charlottesville and Mosque shootings in Quebec and New Zealand.
Andrew Scheer and the conservative party stand unapologetic with him.

Andrew Scheer built his career campaigning against LGBTQ2 rights
2005 – voted against same sex marriage
2006 – tried to reopen same sex marriage debate

Trudeau, Singh and May all marched (together) in Vancouver's Pride parade.
Andrew Scheer can't show up at these events, because he can't risk losing a single bigoted vote to Maxime Bernier.
Imagine that. A party leader too scared of losing his haters to celebrate diversity.

Scheer hypocrisy! Mr. Scheer said this week he should not be bound by the same ethical standards he demanded of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, because the Conservatives are not in government.#cdnpoli https://t.co/wH4Pm3Rpv5

I agree it’s powerful to see three of our federal leaders walking together with you in Vancouver Pride yesterday.
But Andrew Scheer was missing. In fact, he’s never walked in a Pride Parade and over last 15 years has voted against every major LGBTQ2 rights bill. https://t.co/hI0crtDofn
