Pizzagate 'ridiculous and dangerous,' Scheer's office says - 2019-03-08
OTTAWA—Andrew Scheer's office says the Conservative leader "did not hear" a questioner at a town hall in Kitchener Thursday night refer to a debunked American conspiracy theory about a child prostitution ring. Scheer was asked about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's support for the Clinton Foundation, and through it a disproven conspiracy theory that alleged there was a child prostitution ring being run out of a D.C. pizza restaurant.

In a video of the exchange posted online by CBC news, the person can be clearly heard saying the Clinton Foundation was tied to child prostitution and child "sacrifice." Many in the audience applauded the statement. "Trudeau gave $600 million to the Clinton Foundation. The Clinton Foundation is part of child trafficking and child sacrifice, if you study it. It's in the Pizzagate," the person said.
