Andrew Scheer Just Shared A Video Of His New Private Jet & Canadians Aren't Impressed - 2019-09-11
On Wednesday morning, it was finally announced that the 2019 federal election campaign was officially underway. To celebrate the kick-off of his party's campaign, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer took to Twitter to share a video of his new Conservative Party-themed Andrew Scheer private jet. The 35-second clip was met with criticism from Canadians, who called the party leader out for 'hypocrisy'.
Just after 8 p.m. on Tuesday night, Andrew Scheer shared the short clip of the Conservative Party aircraft on his Twitter account, adding the caption, "We're ready." The 35-second video showed Scheer's brand-new plane, which featured his campaign slogan 'It's time for you to get ahead', and massive text that said, 'SCHEER 2019' along one side of the aircraft.
Canadians were quick to respond to Scheer's Twitter post, with a number of people calling him out for his hypocritical behaviour. As Scheer repeatedly refers to himself as a middle-class Canadian, Twitter users took the opportunity to remind him that most middle-class Canadian families do not have access to a private jet.
