A Conservative platform: coming soon. Scheer announced his party would release their full platform on Oct. 11, four days after the sole English-language debate between all party leaders. He made the statement during a campaign stop at a facility in Whitby for disabled young people. During that stop, he also promised to improve access to the federal disability tax credit, picking up on outrage from people with Type 1 diabetes who were briefly denied the tax credit in 2017 by the Canada Revenue Agency. The CRA subsequently reversed course on that decision after public outcry.

The kind of guy who'd waive his right to remain silent. David Menzies, a reporter and commentator for the far-right media outlet The Rebel, was kicked out of Scheer's campaign event in Whitby before getting handcuffed outside the building, allegedly for lacking media accreditation. A video shows the Menzoid calmly explaining his side of things: after he asked several reasonable questions of the Conservative leader, he says, he was asked to leave the property, which he claims he did, only to be handcuffed moments later on the sidewalk.

But there's another side to the story. Cindy Nylander* explained the situation in a Facebook post in a group called "Andrew Scheer for Prime Minister 2019":
