As if the Con leadership race wasn't bizarre or pathetic enough.
With Kellie Leitch trying to stir up hatred against refugees and immigrants.
And Brad Trost trying to stir up hatred against gay Canadians.
Now another Con fanatic is joining the race.
And he couldn't be a more deplorable candidate.
Conservative MP Andrew Scheer is ready to join the race to replace former prime minister Stephen Harper. The former Speaker of the House of Commons plans to file his paperwork and then launch his leadership bid at an event in Ottawa on Wednesday, where his campaign manager says he will appear alongside a number of fellow Conservative MPs and senators who support his candidacy.
For not only was Andrew Scheer a faithful disciple of Stephen Harper.
And one of the worst Speakers this country has ever known...
A Con robot if ever there was one.
He is also a social conservative who should have been booted off his throne in the House of Commons.
On Monday, Andrew Scheer, Speaker of the House of Commons, killed a vote to extend hate crime protection to transgender people, citing an obscure parliamentary rule. On Tuesday, Scheer ignored an obscure parliamentary rule as he allowed a government MP to make a mockery of question period.
For failing to protect transgendered Canadians, allowing people like Paul Calandra to make a mockery out of our democracy...
In response to questions about Iraq, Paul Calandra, the parliamentary secretary to the prime minister, repeatedly answered with non sequiturs about supporting Israel.
NDP Leader Tom Mulcair pleaded with Scheer to keep Calandra, the Conservative MP for Oak Ridges-Markham, in line.
When Scheer refused to intervene, Mulcair called the Speaker out. “Well, Mr. Speaker, that does not speak very favourably about your neutrality in this House,” he said. Scheer then cut off Mulcair’s questions for the day.
And for helping to turn our Parliament into a sideshow.
Parliament has become a sideshow. If the Paul Calandras of the world refuse to act like adults, Canada needs a Speaker who will force them to. If Scheer doesn’t want to be that person, he should resign and let someone else be the saviour of common sense.
A Speaker so biased and so useless, Rick Mercer once suggested he should be replaced with a bag of flour...
But believe it or not is now a heavy favourite to win the Con leadership race...
And the good news?
I think this tweet sums up the situation.
One thing Canadians can be certain of is when Conservatives finally choose their "leader" from that sorry lot, they won't ever regain power.— Jan Fletcher (@FletJan) September 27, 2016
The Con leadership race is now a sideshow...
One religious fanatic has replaced another.
And the Cons are heading for a hell of their own making...
