Scheer Reportedly Lied On His Resume & Now People Are Saying He's "Not As Advertised" - 2019-09-30
Andrew Scheer has been using the phrase "not as advertised" to discredit Justin Trudeau and the Liberal campaign. However, those words are now being used against him, as a report from the Globe and Mail found that Andrew Scheer never received the proper accreditation to be an insurance broker, a job Scheer has claimed numerous times during the campaign to have held.
According to the National Post, Scheer tried to clarify the situation by saying, "I did receive my accreditation. I left the insurance office before the licensing process was finalized." However, the Liberal Party does not think that the explanation is good enough.
The Liberals have formally requested that the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan and the Insurance Councils of Saskatchewan look into Scheer's claims that he was an insurance broker. In the request, Liberal MP Marco Mendicino wrote that Scheer "appears to have publicly and repeatedly misrepresented himself to Canadians," according to CBC News.
