Andrew Scheer Got Busted for a Pointless Resume Lie - 2019-09-30
For an election cycle often centred around party leaders' personalities, the Conservatives' haven't managed to give Andrew Scheer much of one.
This has prompted multiple outlets to ask who the man is and what makes him tick. Scheer likely welcomes efforts to get his message out there, but got more than he bargained for this Saturday when the Globe and Mail published a profile that fact-checked his short non-political resume, specifically his time as "insurance broker."
That's what his official party bio says he did before going into politics. Except the Globe said that Scheer never got a license to be an insurance broker. While it's not on the same level as the Trudeau blackface scandal, it is a telling misrepresentation from a leader who's been caught bending the truth more than once this campaign.
