OTTAWA—Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is defending his participation in a protest with ties to the so-called Canadian "yellow vest" movement that mixed pro-pipeline advocacy with anti-immigrant rhetoric.

On Monday, Scheer defended his address to the "United We Roll" protest on Parliament Hill, a convoy of oilsands workers and supporters that arrived in Ottawa last week after departing from Red Deer, Alta.

"First of all, the events of last week were organized by people who have lost their jobs, who are facing tremendous anxiety about what the future will bring," Scheer told reporters outside the House of Commons Monday.
