Andrew Scheer says he has removed Michael Cooper from the justice committee over comments the Conservative member of Parliament made earlier in the week.

The Tory leader says it was "insensitive and unacceptable" for Cooper to quote the suspected Christchurch shooter to a Muslim witness during a parliamentary hearing.

Reading the name and quoting the words of the Christchurch shooter, especially when directed at a Muslim witness during a parliamentary hearing, is insensitive and unacceptable. Mr. Cooper has apologized. I accept his apology and I consider the matter closed. (2/2) — Andrew Scheer (@AndrewScheer) June 2, 2019
