For the third time since winning the Conservative Party leadership, Andrew Scheer won't be marching in Pride parades this year.

His office confirmed the news first reported by the National Post on Thursday that Scheer is not scheduled to attend any of the upcoming parades that celebrate acceptance and the rights hard won by the LGBTQ2 community over the course of decades of discrimination.

Scheer, who was elected leader of the Conservative Party in May 2017, also did not attend any Pride parades that year or last year, which was also the position taken by former Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper before him.
