Conservative Leadership Candidate Peter MacKay Endorses Vigilante Justice To Deal With Protesters - 2020-02-19
Conservative Party leadership candidate Peter MacKay appears to be endorsing vigilante justice as a practical solution for dealing with protesters.
MacKay, who served as Canada's Justice Minister and Attorney General under former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, raised eyebrows Wednesday after tweeting his support for a group of far-right counter-protesters linked to the controversial United We Roll convoy and yellow vest groups.
"Glad to see a couple Albertans with a pickup truck can do more for our economy in an afternoon than Justin Trudeau could do in four years," MacKay tweeted, applauding the far-right group taking matters into their own hands.
MacKay deleted his tweet later Wednesday night.
