A Viral Facebook Post Accuses Andrew Scheer Of Saying "We Don't Need" Indigenous People - 2019-09-21
The 2019 Canadian federal election has certainly not been without its controversies so far. From Trudeau's SNC-Lavalin scandal, and his blackface and brownface images, to Scheer's 2005 anti-gay marriage video, there has certainly been no shortage of drama. It seems that there is more to come, however, as one Facebook user is now accusing Andrew Scheer of saying that he doesn't need the votes of 'Indians' to win.
In a post that was shared just prior to the publication of Trudeau's racist blackface images, one Saskatchewan Facebook user shared a story about Andrew Scheer, alleging that the Conservative Party leader once said that he didn't need the votes of Indigenous people to get ahead.
Agecoutay went on to explain, "He [Scheer] opened up the discussion as a formal position of the party platform 'I don't need your Indian votes, I don't need Indians to win'...What was more disturbing, not the fact that he was right, the look on his face, pure pleasure."
