Conservative leader Andrew Scheer is doubling down on his support of a convoy of pro-pipeline protesters with ties to Canada's Yellow Vest movement, which has become notorious for its racist and anti-immigrant rhetoric.

Last week, Scheer addressed the United We Roll protesters, who drove from Red Deer, Alberta to Parliament Hill in Ottawa ostensibly to protest the carbon tax and federal legislation to overhaul the process of environmental assessments for energy projects.

"The events of last week were organized by people who have lost their jobs, who are facing tremendous anxiety about what the future will bring," Scheer told reporters outside the House of Commons Monday.
