Canada Election 2019: For Andrew Scheer, politics means never having to say you're sorry - 2019-09-19
Words matter, but it requires what is almost an ontological and certainly moral change.
As a devout Catholic Andrew Scheer should understand this. Yet Scheer himself has yet to apologize for comparing same-sex marriage to the anatomy of a dog in a 2005 speech in the House of Commons. Does he not believe that an apology is required?
Evidently not. Scheer's reaction to past homophobic and racist remarks of a number of his candidates has been to play politics with the profound. It's all as incompetent as it is unsavoury.
