The Conservatives' "Yellow Vest" Picture Has Started A Major Debate On Twitter - 2019-10-15
With Canada's federal election now just one short week away, the country's politicians are doing whatever they can to stay out of trouble. However, a recent post from the official Conservative Party of Canada Twitter page has got the internet arguing once again today, as some people are accusing the party of sympathizing with Canada's 'yellow vesters.'
Tweeting on Monday afternoon, the Conservative Party account posted a picture of party leader, Andrew Scheer, shaking hands with a man wearing a yellow vest. The caption read, "This election isn't about me, or even Justin Trudeau. It's about helping you get ahead."
While the tweet was likely not meant to be controversial, the post quickly caught the attention of Canadians online, with some suggesting the image showed Conservative support for Canada's "yellow vesters," a controversial, anti-government group, known to have made death threats to Justin Trudeau.
