Scheer and Bernier should denounce extremists in Ottawa convoy - 2019-02-27
Yet, despite the rebrand, despite the close alliances with the racism violence and bigotry of YVC, convoy organizer Glen Carritt still claimed his group identified with the yellow vests and welcomed them to the convoy.
Carritt was not the only one to welcome YVC and other convoy members to Parliament Hill. Andrew Scheer, federal leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, along with Maxime Bernier, leader of the new ultra-right "People's Party," hopped on the same bandwagon used by Faith Goldy to support and bring greetings to the small group of convoy protesters.
No question they had every right to do so. What is deeply troubling, however, was that neither Scheer nor Bernier uttered one word of concern about the racists now firmly associated with the convoy. Their silence was deafening.
