This Video Reportedly Shows Andrew Scheer Sitting During The Canadian National Anthem - 2019-10-16
Since the start of this federal election campaign, several old videos have resurfaced of Canada's major party leaders, and most of them have been less-than-flattering. Now, with the election just days away, another old video has re-emerged on social media, and it appears to show party leader Andrew Scheer sitting during the national anthem of Canada.
This is the third big video to resurface during the campaign. Back in August, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer was heavily criticized after a 2005 video of him denouncing same-sex marriage went viral, and shortly after, a highly controversial video of the Prime Minister in blackface also reappeared.
In a tweet on Wednesday morning, Liberal MP Marc Garneau shared the old video of Scheer, which showed a considerable number of Canadian politicians in the House of Commons. While most people were standing to sing the Canadian national anthem, there was one person who was notably sitting down, Andrew Scheer.
