Andrew Scheer's party has a shaky record with Canada's judiciary - 2019-03-12
Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, on high horse, has proclaimed that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has "lost the moral authority to govern" and allowed "his partisan political motivations to overrule his duty to uphold the rule of law." Scheer has further condemned the "frankly illegal pressure" faced by former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould in the SNC-Lavalin affair.
It's an overreach, to be sure. But let's grant Scheer a little latitude for his inflated rhetoric. As opposition leader, he has a duty to focus public attention squarely on the misdeeds of the government of the day.
