The British Government Is Calling Nonsense On Scheer's Child-Killer Twitter Rant - 2019-09-04
Sometimes, it almost feels like politicians would be better off without Twitter all together. If it isn't Andrew Scheer sharing strange photos of himself lurking in bushes, or the Conservative Party page getting involved in anti-gay-marriage drama, it is Justin Trudeau posting pictures of himself using single-use plastics. With the federal election nearing every day, you'd think Canada's leading politicians would be on their best behaviour online.
Unfortunately, Andrew Scheer's most recent tweets about a British child-killer coming to live in Canada have now also backfired, after the U.K. Government categorically confirmed that this is completely untrue, making Scheer look silly on Twitter once again.
The Conservative Party leader first posted about the British murderer on Monday, writing that, "this pedophile child killer might come to Canada." In the post, Scheer shared an article from provocative British tabloid, The Daily Mail, which suggested that infamous child-murderer Jon Venables could be moving to Canada after being released from prison in the U.K.
