OTTAWA — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer won't say whether he thinks extreme weather events have anything to do with climate change and human activity.

Over the weekend, deputy leader Lisa Raitt tweeted a link to an article published in the Financial Post by University of Guelph economics professor Ross McKitrick.

She quoted two lines from McKitrick's piece, claiming: "there's no solid connection between climate change and the major indicators of extreme weather, despite Trudeau's claims to the contrary. The continual claim of such a link is misinformation employed for political and rhetorical purposes."
