The Conservatives Just Clapped Back After Andrew Scheer's Gay Marriage Speech From 2005 - 2019-08-22
With October's federal election now only 59 short days away, tensions between the leading political parties are at an all-time high. While Conservative leader Andrew Scheer has gone to 'obsessive' lengths to drag Justin Trudeau over the SNC-Lavalin scandal, it seems it is his turn for a slice of controversy, after an old video of him slamming gay marriage has come back to haunt him. If it wasn't bad enough already, the official Conservative Party Twitter page also got involved in the action, creating a massive thread dragging politicians from the Liberal party over their anti-gay marriage comments too. Yikes!
On Thursday afternoon, a 2005 video of Andrew Scheer speaking about why gay marriage shouldn't be legalized in Canada went viral, causing massive backlash and controversy across the internet. Shortly after the video, which sees Scheer making a bizarre connection between same-sex marriage and a dog having five legs (yes, really) went viral, the Conservative Party Twitter page decided to get involved in the debate, taking the opportunity to slam a number of Liberal politicians in a nine-tweet thread, that began with "We're just gonna leave these here..."
Of the eight tweets that were posted quoting Liberal politicians, five were directed at John Mckay, who is a Liberal MP for the riding of Scarborough/Guildwood.
