Andrew Scheer Thought The Liberals Would Let A UK Child-Killer Move To Canada - 2019-09-03
Andrew Scheer has taken his share of missteps on the campaign trail, and it looks like he might have just tripped up again. This time, the mistake seems to have shown up on Andrew Scheer's Twitter, along with an alarmist article from the Daily Mail.
The article itself was about infamous child-killer Jon Venables possibly moving to Canada after being released from prison on child pornography charges. In 1993 at the age of 10, Venables and Robert Thompson both abducted two-year-old James Bulger and murdered him. They were convicted but released at age 18.
Scheer tweeted a link to the story saying, "As Prime Minister I won't let him come here. Where does Trudeau stand?" It was a clear political shot at his main opponent in the upcoming federal election.
