He tried to hide it for many years. He didn't want anyone to know that he was also an American citizen.
Especially since he had gone after Former Gov. General Michaëlle Jean for holding a French citizenship.
And when he was finally exposed, he promised to renounce his American citizenship as soon as possible.
But sadly the Ugly American was lying. Again.
Can you believe it? He's still an American citizen, and he has no intention of renouncing it.Scheer says he halted the process of renouncing his U.S. citizenship once he stepped down as leader. Why? "Just for personal reasons..." #ctvqp #cdnpoli— CTV QUESTION PERIOD (@ctvqp) May 17, 2020

Outgoing Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer still holds his U.S. citizenship, after stating during the 2019 federal election campaign that he was in the process of renouncing it.
"Knowing that I won't be prime minister, I discontinued that process," Scheer said.
And to make this scandal even weirder, he won't tell us why or when.
Asked why the change of heart, Scheer cited "personal reasons."
He could not say when exactly he stopped the process of dropping his American citizenship. "I'd have to go back and check," he said.
I believe it's because as a major figure in the shadowy religious right movement he wants to be able to freely visit his followers in both countries.
But since the Ugly American is clearly losing his marbles.
I suppose anything is possible...
But whatever those "personal reasons" senior Con strategists aren't amused.
The other day Kory Teneycke compared Scheer to a "zombie leader lurching from one mistake to the other."
Now Jenni Byrne, who helped elect Stephen Harper and Doug Ford, has given also him a big thumbs down.
Or better said squashed him like a bug.
Scheer wants to stay on as leader so he can direct his coven of religious fanatics, misogynists, racists, and homophobes to decide who will replace him. And so keep his power and influence.
But I think it's too late for that. The Ugly American has corrupted his party so completely.
Nothing can save him or his Cons now...
I doubt Scheer ever made a move to renounce his US citizenship. He always gave vague answers when asked about when he started the process and now he can't remember when he ended it. Either his memory's shot or he's lying - either way, he's unfit to be leader. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
He won't quit and the caucus won't get rid of him either. Not when this is the same caucus that wouldn't ditch Sloan after he shamelessly and baselessly attacked Dr. Tam as a PRC infiltrator. Now the same crackpots who begged for Cmdr. Waterford to stay are in a good position to throw his wackadoo so-con votes to the Tool on the ranked ballot, which if you read the latest Tyee deep-dive into Harper's machinations, it seems the fix is in for him anyway. The Yank wanker might as well become a stateless itinerant on a corona cruise ship, because we don't want him back here either, or Rempelthinskin for that matter. We have enough useless Trumpublicans and Foxbots as it is. LOL, I thought Canada was going to stop dumping their garbage in other countries, and now you want to send us Devin Nunes' dumber cousin? Worst Netflix crossover remake of Perfect Strangers and Due South ever! Moo...! 🥛 🐄
Perhaps he can team up with Mat Shea and claim the pacific garbage patch as their 51st christian state and live happily ever after.
Scheer probably started he process to renounce US citizenship just after he got the job as an insurance broker.
I had suspected that he was renouncing it to avoid US income taxes. There was a let of that going around a few years ago when the US started cracking down on US citizens living in Canada.
Heck, he could not even get that right!
.. hello again Simon..
I am just restating here.. You deserve a break. Scheer is an outlier.. a sad indication of how rancid 'Governance' & by extension, 'Politics' can become. To see you attack him seems so uh.. wasteful. You have wondrous skills, crisp voice, ideas.. and I prefer the idea of you punting the island lagoons with friends.. to the tiresome battles of lickspittles a la Scheer.. or O'Toole et al INC .. The season of Spring calls.. Let Scheer cry and wail from Stornoway.. You should sally forth and refresh.. recharge.. we need you with all batteries topped up.. healthy (wickedly aimed).. Sure, send us all your daily or weekly postcard.. but you don't need to trash Scheer.. he's doing a great job all by himself.. The real issue is.. why are we paying and pensioning him to do it ? Riddle me that Monsieur Simon d'Montreal
The first question to ask every con. Are you now, have you ever been or do you want to be an American Citizen? Rembly Oakly and the others should go where they feel welcome.
Scheer has done nothing to contribute to the fight against Covid-19, and for that alone he should be fired. However, if the Cons are determined to shoot themselves in both feet, I won't complain too loudly. The CPC is rotting from the head down, and they will soon have to be scraped off the road with a shovel.
I wonder if Andy was reaching for his glass of holy water when asked why he didn't renounce his citizenship. A clear sign he's lying or agitated. It's funny how he likes to tarnish all CERB recipients as possible fraud artists when he's the biggest fraud of all. Andy the insurance broker, Andy getting caught with his hands in the Con cookie jar, etc, etc, etc.
Add another stinking albatross to the neck of the next Con leader as they prepare to board the Con election campaign that will become known as the Titanic.
Speaking of zombies and the plague that refuses to subside: Silicon Valley continues its descent into craven psychopathy as Fascistbook just hired Kellyanne Curran to inject IDU ideology right into Zuck's cold veins. In a related story Drona Ambrose the "health minister" and supposed "moderate" threat to Trudeau in the long-ago before times of six months ago has signed on with Big Tobacco, another pervasive menace to the public health. Meanwhile Kevin Rudd, former Aussie PM and a better overall person than Scotty from Accounting or Malcolm Trunchbull, has called Rupert Moloch's reich-wing media empire a cancer on humanity. I can already see Trudeau saying the same eventually of Zuck and co once King Rupert finally turns to dust in the outback sun. I wonder what's next on the Borg agenda or what other useless northern Republicons the nerd virgins plan to poach? Jenni the Impaler to Reddit? Skippy to Gab? Rotary Dialup MacKay selling installation discs for AOL? Maybe Yankee Doody Andy and Michelle the Drink Box Sorta Wine Thing can hock green cards to lonely Wexiteers over at TrumpSingles.com...
Good. Every day he stays in office puts the Conservatives that much farther away from ever holding power again.
I don't want Scheer to stop digging before he reaches China.
Hi anon....I also doubt that Scheer made any move to renounce his US citizenship. The Ugly American is such a serial liar, I don't believe anything he says. He has always been more of an American politician than a Canadian one , and the land of the bigots is where he belongs....
Hi Jackie....You're right, when the grotesque bigot Derek Sloan can get away with smearing Dr Tam and other Asian Canadians, as well as attacking the human rights of women and LGBT people, Scheer can probably get away with anything. And you're also right, dumping Scheer and Rempel in your country would not be very neighbourly....😉
Hi jrkrideau....That's an interesting point. If you look at where he is investing his millions, he clearly is a man who is as interested in making a lot of money as he is in spreading his hateful Gospel. And let's not forget the $900,000 in taxpayer subsidized party funds he helped himself to, and for which he has yet to offer any explanation. If our Con media wasn't so corrupt itself, the Ugly American could be on his way to jail already....
Hi salamander....I don't doubt that you have my best interests at heart, and I certainly can't wait to get my sailing boat in the water. And I certainly will write about other subjects, when I get a chance. But right now the Cons are still a clear and present danger, they are smearing Canadians who are receiving CERB payments, and their bigotry remains undiminished. So until they are crushed in the next election, I will not stop attacking them....
HI Steve....I'm afraid that won't work with our shabby Cons. They will lie like thieves, claim they are more Canadian than the Canadians, while continuing to act like the RepubliCons they are. I still vividly remember how shocked I was by Stepen Harper's first Republican-style attack ad, and realized that the Cons were about to mutate into something that would threaten the foundations of our beutiful peaceful country. Harper was the original virus, and our Canada is still fighting off his sickness....
Hi anon....not only have Scheer and his RepubliCons contributed nothing to the fight against Covid-19, they are actively engaged in trying to undermine Team Canada and the heroic efforts of our frontline workers. The CPC is indeed rotting from the head down and they must not be allowed to get away with it....
Hi JD....I'm sure Scheer was gulping water like a fish, for there is no better sign that he is lying, except for his expanding pointy nose. Although I'm not receiving any CERB money, it infuriates me to see a corrupt millionaire like Scheer putting down the millions of Canadians who desperately need them. But you're right, the Cons are riding on their leaky Titanic, and hopefully they will all go down together....
Hi Jackie....I saw that Ambrose had signed on with Big Tobacco I couldn't believe my eyes. For all I remember about her mediocre reign as Con queen was her deranged attack on marijuana, and how she claimed that Justin Trudeau was trying to kill us. I made quite a few photoshops about that, and I may have to take them out and use them again. As for Curran going to work for Facebook, all I can say is that they deserve each other, and it's yet another good reason for people to delete their Facebook accounts...
Why would we want a failed liar replaced by a hand picked Harper lite? We should enjoy the CPC "stinking albatross" as long as we can. Sure the new guy will claim Trudeau's response to Covid-19 created a fiscal mess and he was really weak by not jumping on the Trump inspired anti Chinese bandwagon but thankfully this will happen after the outbreak has subsided. Hard to believe that a few short months ago Trump called Covid-19 a Democratic hoax, now he is claiming its all China's fault for hiding the severity of the virus while at the same time blaming the Dem governors for keeping their states in quasi lock down so he cannot hold political rallies. He has shamelessly turned a divide and conquer strategy into divide and kill for his own benefit. If not for Scheer ineptness we could be experiencing the same effect in Canada!
