Why Andrew Scheer would be a dangerous prime minister - 2019-10-01
As a 60-year-old white man I didn't feel enormously qualified to comment about Justin Trudeau's brown and blackface travesties when the story first broke — though this didn't seem to prevent countless others from becoming overnight experts — but I will say now that whatever their intention and however long ago, the actions themselves were repugnant.
But here's the thing. As much as I am revolted by what Trudeau did with his blackface nonsense, I'm more concerned at the Conservatives' whiteface antics. That party's approach to climate change policy, First Nations issues, economic justice, foreign affairs, social equality, and so much else is deeply disquieting.
Andrew Scheer was never supposed to be the leader, but was the final "anybody but Bernier" candidate standing. The Tory war-room has spent most of its time since then trying to morph the man into what he is not.
