Several politicians who spoke to the Straight at today's Vancouver Pride parade said they weren't surprised that Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer was a no-show.

But few were as dismissive of the Opposition leader than Spencer Chandra Herbert, the long-time NDP MLA for Vancouver–West End, where the parade takes place.

Scheer has refused to attend any Pride-related events this year in Canada.

According to Chandra Herbert, it means that Scheer is "not a serious contender to be prime minister".
