F0.png 'It becomes insulting': Scheer called out for using wrong photo in Sikh holiday post October 29, 2019, Maham Abedi, Global News

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is being called out over a social media post that was meant to mark a Sikh celebration — but used an image of another festival instead.

The erroneous tweet and Facebook post, published on Sunday, were flagged by social media users but were not addressed by the party.

Global News reached out to Conservative party spokesman Simon Jefferies over email on the error, but did not hear back by publication. However, Scheer's tweet was deleted after the Global News inquiry. The photo was also removed from Facebook.
