A month before, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer had appeared at the United We Roll rally, in Ottawa, where far-right commentator Faith Goldy and members of the Yellow Vest Canada movement, which has been repeatedly targeted by anti-racist organizations for accommodating white-nationalist and anti-immigrant groups at its events, were also in attendance.

Aylwin decided to call out the Conservatives by way of two Barrie-area Conservative MPs, John Brassard and Alex Nuttall.

"We have two Conservative MPs in Barrie that have been silent on their leader's appearance on the same stage as a neo-Nazi sympathizer. This is unacceptable and it is dangerous. They are playing footsies with white supremacists who have inspired violence through Yellow Vest Canada social media channels and elsewhere," he continued.
