Lynn Beyak, ousted from Tory caucus, goes after ‘inexperienced’ Scheer

Sen. Lynn Beyak denies that Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer asked her to remove letters from her Senate website supporting her view on the residential school system before kicking her out of caucus.

The senator, who’s now an Independent, said she found out about her removal in Scheer’s media statement sent late Thursday.

In it, Scheer said he demanded Beyak remove some of the comments, but she refused. Scheer’s spokesperson, Jake Enwright, said the conversation took place over the phone.

“Contrary to his statement, that he asked me to remove content and I refused, neither I nor my staff ever spoke with Andrew Scheer or anyone from his office, at any time,” said Beyak in a statement Monday.

    so, Andrew Scheer made it all up as a pretext to oust her?
    That seems ethically “iffy”.

    • Alain

      Well, Scheer is turning out to be extremely “iffy”.

    • He’s Iffy the Effy

  • Alain

    Disgusting! The CPC under Scheer is doing everything to give the Liberals another turn in office.

    • Jennifer Seigel

      Yeah, you got that right. What a cuck.

    • Pretty much.

      • ontario john

        I think she would have made a better leader of the party.

    • ntt1

      Scheer is no leader and certainly does not give me any joy as a conservative voter.our best hope is to vote conservative with deep reservations about Scheer and hope they have the wit to oust him as leader

        And in Ontario, we have that jerk brown.

        • We are doubly blessed.

      Having been repeatedly disappointed by SMOD’s absence, I put my hopes in another term from Justin.

    Scheer’s an empty suit……..that was obvious from the start….he gives off a huge beta male vibe.
    What a country this is…..all three leaders of all three political parties are bums…….crybaby crooks liars and racists.

    • They don’t want to lead they want us to follow unquestionably.

      • Bataviawillem

        That’s not called “lead” that’s called “rule”

    The count for Conservative women parliamentarians I now respect has jumped 50%.

    If there is one narrative that absolutely cannot be criticized in Canada, it is the narrative of aboriginal victimhood everywhere. Senator Beyak is showing a lot of courage in the face of the vilification she is getting on all sides, including those who should be supporting at least open dialogue on this subject.

      My feeling as well. Scheer clearly doesn’t allow his MP’s to hold opinions he doesn’t agree with.

      • ntt1

        And he is totally open to tossing what little spine he has .trudeau is a disaster but trying to oust him by sending in another disaster just won’t work

        • Tooth&Claw

          We need to let him know this. Voting for something equally as bad is not an option.

  • Alain

    I received in today’s mail yet another request from Scheer to donate, and I am debating if it is even worth yet again returning the request with my usual reply that I cannot in good faith continue contributing to a party that refuses to address the serious issue of mass immigration and the on-going acceptance of Muslims. To date my replies have been ignored with more requests following as though I had never replied.

    • Tooth&Claw

      You could let your MP know and Scheer directly. Snail mail though…it garners a little more attention.

      • Alain

        If you knew my MP, you wouldn’t say that. Also all my previous replies were by regular post, not e-mail. In fact I’ve never provided them with my e-mail, so at least I don’t get spam from them.

        • Tooth&Claw

          I defer to your greater experience with your own representative. Mine’s no great shakes either.

  • Who the hell is running things?

    • Alain

      Scheer and company always run away scared shitless that someone will accuse them of not being PC enough. I am more than a little fed up seeing this while having to witness the on-going destruction of my country.

    • El Martyachi ✓ᴴᵉˡᶦᶜᵒᵖᵗᵉʳᶦˢᵗ

      Not me, because…
      1. The CBC and INAC haven’t been cancelled, freeing up ~10 billion.
      2. The air force hasn’t purchased 200 Chinook helicopters.

      • One could take the first person one saw walking down the street and he would do a better job.

        • El Martyachi ✓ᴴᵉˡᶦᶜᵒᵖᵗᵉʳᶦˢᵗ

          Especially if the first person one saw was me.

          • Your ideas appeal to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

    “A good leader would never have fallen for such a ploy, but when an
    inexperienced leader wins by a small margin, and does not adequately
    consider other viewpoints, some wisdom and common sense are lost.”
    That about sums up Mr. Scheer.

    Seems the CPC “Big tent” just got a little smaller.
