Andrew Scheer not on published list of former U.S. citizens - 2019-11-19
Global News asked the federal Conservative Party to clarify the issue.
"Mr. Scheer has filed his paperwork and the process is ongoing," party spokesperson Simon Jefferies wrote in an email. He did not respond to followup questions about whether Scheer had actually taken the oath of renunciation, which would cause him to cease to be a U.S. citizen.
In early October, Scheer said he visited the U.S. embassy in Ottawa just before the election began in August to say he was renouncing his citizenship. He also said he is currently awaiting confirmation from the embassy after filing the paperwork.
