Scheer Is Okay With Problematic Candidates Who Apologize But Canadians Beg To Differ - 2019-09-15
As the Conservative candidate, Andrew Scheer is the main representative of his party. That means that he typically will have to answer for other Conservative candidates. In one recent instance, it meant that Andrew Scheer had to address Faith Goldy being friends with Conservative candidate Justina McCaffrey.
McCaffrey and Goldy appeared together in a video surfaced by a number of Liberal candidates. In it, McCaffrey describes Goldy as her "best friend." Goldy, who ran for mayor of Toronto in 2018, was a contributor to Rebel Media. She has been banned from Facebook for promoting white supremacy and spreading hate speech.
A Conservative spokesperson defended McCaffrey, saying the video was from 2013. However, CTV News reporter Glen McGregor posted a photo of McCaffrey and Goldy on Twitter dated January 2017. McCaffrey refused to answer questions about her association with Goldy.
