A few days ago we got to watch that grotesque video of Andrew Scheer comparing LGBT Canadians to dogs.
And revealing his inner religious fanatic.
Well now more of that deeply disturbing fanaticism has been exposed.
And it's just as shocking.
For it turns out that Scheer and his creepy Cons have been playing nasty games with the issue of abortion.
Saying one thing in English Canada, and something completely different in Quebec.
Andrew Scheer’s Quebec lieutenant acknowledged Monday that he has publicly misrepresented the Conservative leader’s policy on abortion.
Alain Rayes, the MP for Richmond–Arthabaska tasked with recruitment, has been informing candidates and telling the media that the abortion issue is dead and that MPs will be prevented from reopening it — information that Scheer’s office suggested was news to them and a policy that caught social conservative groups working to elect Conservative “pro-life” candidates by surprise.
Which has left some Con candidates like Sylvie Fréchette, the former synchronized swimmer, flailing around like a beached whale, and looking like an idiot.
With Rayes at her side, freshly minted Tory candidate and Olympic medallist Sylvie Fréchette told the Montreal radio program, ”Tout un matin”, Monday that it was “false” that Conservative backbench MPs would be able to reopen the abortion issue. “That’s totally false,” the Rivière-du-Nord contender said.
When she should have known that a religious fanatic like Scheer would never agree to NOT reopen the abortion issue.
Scheer, who became the Conservative leader in 2017 in part by courting the support of anti-abortion activists, has never said he would prohibit or attempt to prevent his MPs from introducing anti-abortion legislation. He has said the opposite.
And that as a member in good standing of the religious right, Scheer's master plan is to try to turn the Cons into a party with hardline anti-abortion policies.
He has always liked to operate in the shadows, but eight years ago he briefly exposed himself and his plan, when he sent thousands of dollars to the candidate at the heart of the robocall scandal.
The political machine behind the man who is now Speaker of the House of Commons opened its wallet for the Guelph Conservative campaign currently under scrutiny by Election Canada's robo-calls probe, records at the watchdog agency show.
Less than two weeks before the 2011 election, Andrew Scheer's Regina-Qu'Appelle riding association in Saskatchewan transferred $3,000 to the Guelph Conservative campaign for candidate Marty Burke.Less than two weeks before the 2011 election, Andrew Scheer's Regina-Qu'Appelle riding association in Saskatchewan transferred $3,000 to the Guelph Conservative campaign for candidate Marty Burke.
Scheer's riding association claimed that Burke, seen here with Michael Sona the only Con who did time for the robocall scandal, got the money because he had once volunteered for Scheer.
And our useless Con media gobbled that one up like only they could.
But I and others are convinced that the real reason Burke got the money is because he believes that a woman must not have an abortion under any circumstances. And that at the heart of the robocall scandal was a religious conspiracy.
Burke was never questioned about that or anything else, because he quickly moved to Kuwait, a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with Canada.
So Scheer was never held accountable, and moved swiftly to implement his master plan as soon as he became Con leader.
First he rejected Rona Ambrose's choice of a moderate candidate to replace her, in favour of the alt-right sympathizer and anti-abortion warrior Dane Lloyd.
In a Facebook post from 2008 regarding abortion rights activist Dr. Henry Morgentaler being named to the Order of Canada, Lloyd said: "If fetus' are parasites in the mothers womb and she has a right to abort them because of their dependence, then you could argue young children could legally be left to die because of their dependence on mothers."
And now with an election looming, Scheer is parachuting one anti-abortion candidate after the other into ridings all over the country.
Like the ones mentioned in this Twitter thread.
They include the singing cowboy George Canyon.

Who was clearly parachuted into a riding not because of his songs but because of his "pro-family" views.
As well as those who are being recruited and promoted by the well funded group Right Now.
Who are in a hurry to restrict abortion rights, as is Scheer himself...
Unfortunately there are other Cons whose hardline views on abortion can no longer be exposed, because the virulently anti-choice site Campaign Life has conveniently shutdown its candidates rating guide until after the election.
They're blaming Elections Canada for that, and of course Justin Trudeau.
But has I suspect it has more to do with Scheer's plan to keep this shadowy conspiracy under wraps, until he can get a majority, turn this country into some kind of ghastly Gilead North...
And then move swiftly to restrict the rights of women and LGBT Canadians.
I realize that for many Canadians religion is something you do in a church, and they have a hard time believing that what is happening in the U.S. could happen here.
But they're dead wrong. It could happen here, it is happening here.
The religious right is on the move, so are their fascist friends, and they are a mortal threat to the Canada we know and love.
So unless Canadians want to wake up in a country they don't recognize, they need to make absolutely sure that Scheer and his monstrous Cons never get anywhere near a majority.
Or they will regret it forever......
