Andrew Scheer joins caucus members in condemning Bernier’s ‘identity politics’

Maxime Bernier received an official rebuke from his boss, Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer, and a broadside from a Pakistani-Canadian Conservative senator today as the party moved to distance itself from the former leadership contender’s opinions on multiculturalism on the eve of its national convention.

Scheer pointed out in a statement issued this evening that Bernier “holds no official role in caucus and does not speak for the Conservative Party of Canada on any issue.”

Referencing Bernier’s recent tweets attacking the Liberal government’s “extreme multiculturalism,” Scheer said that “personally, I disagree with politicians on the left and the right when they use identity politics to divide Canadians.

Shorter Scheer – I am a dick.

GOLDSTEIN: Come clean on climate change, Tories

Just because the Trudeau Liberals aren’t being honest with the public on the issue of man-made climate change, doesn’t mean Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives should get a pass on it.

The one valid criticism Environment Minister Catherine McKenna makes amid her increasingly absurd claims about the effectiveness of her boss’ plan — which is really just a multi-billion-dollar cash grab from Canadians masquerading as an environmental policy — is that Scheer and the Conservatives have no plan.

Conservatives pull controversial attack ad of black asylum seeker walking on Trudeau tweet to cross border

Conservative party spokesman Cory Hann says the ad was axed because the situation at the border is not about any one group of people

OTTAWA — The Conservative party pulled an attack ad from its Twitter feed Tuesday that depicted a black man carrying a suitcase walking over a tweet from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

What cowardly idiots. Letting the Liberals dictate the state of play once again.

“I have removed Maxime Bernier from the Official Opposition Shadow Cabinet, effective immediately” Scheer said in a short statement issued by his office.

“The Shadow Minister for Science, Matt Jeneroux, will assume the additional role of shadow minister for innovation, science and economic development on an interim basis.”

Pity I was warming to Bernier.

GOLDSTEIN: Scheer’s carbon fantasies as bad as Trudeau’s

It’s bad enough when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau misleads Canadians by claiming we can reach our international commitments to reduce industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change through his national carbon pricing plan.

But it’s no better when Conservative leader Andrew Scheer claims he can do so without the measure if he wins the 2019 election, as he said Sunday on CTV’s Question Period, adding, “The Liberals would love to have people believe that the choice is a carbon tax or nothing. I reject that.”

Maxime Bernier says ‘fake Conservatives’ won Scheer the leadership

OTTAWA–Andrew Scheer’s office is declining to comment on his former rival’s claim that “fake Conservatives” won Scheer the Conservative leadership last year.

In a book excerpt published Tuesday, Beauce MP Maxime Bernier suggested a well-organized group of Quebec dairy farmers signed up new Conservative members to block his leadership bid.

Bernier, who campaigned on ending the supply management system for dairy farmers, said Scheer’s courtship of those new members “was precisely why he got elected.”

“Andrew, along with several other candidates, was then busy touring Quebec’s agricultural belt, including my own riding of Beauce, to pick up support from these fake Conservatives,” Bernier wrote.
