Andrew Scheer plans to be the only major federal leader to sit out climate protests taking place at more than 140 different places across Canada Friday.

At a press conference in Montreal Thursday, the Conservative leader said the Tories will have "representation," in the form of local candidates, at a massive climate march set to take place in that city Friday.

The event is expected to draw thousands of people, including Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg. Earlier this week, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May urged leader to put their swords away and attend the Montreal rally, saying the climate crisis is "more important than partisan politics."

But the Tory leader said that while he will be "sending my support to them," he is booked with campaign events in Vancouver (where another climate strike will be held.)
