Painful Truth: Why did Andrew Scheer speak at an event with a white nationalist? - 2019-02-21
The trouble started back in December, when Scheer jumped onto the conspiracy theory bandwagon with both feet. He was suddenly concerned – very concerned! – about the UN Compact on Migration. How could Canada give up "our sovereignty" to make decisions on immigration, he asked.
Well… we aren't. As many, many people have tried to patiently explain, the compact is non-binding. It is not a treaty. It's mostly a series of best-practices for countries dealing with migrants. A good portion of it is about trying to halt people-smuggling through better international cooperation.
But never mind that! The conspiracy theorists have been fanning the flames online! And Scheer clearly had their back.
This week, things got much, much worse.
