There’s a lot to like about new CPC leader Andrew Scheer, for conservatives.
Even his style is conservative — he’s boring. Which is refreshing, at a time when Justin Trudeau is at the recent G7 and NATO meetings, showing off his socks.
Scheer is a normal guy: five kids, no taxpayer funded nannies. Drives a minivan, not a private jet.
And I like some of the things Scheer promised in his convention night speech:
Standing by freedom of speech, scrapping the carbon tax, and saying the words “Islamic terror.”
After a long, heated campaign, Scheer is likely tougher and better now than he was six months ago.
I hope so. I’ll show you some clips from my interview with him six months ago. I asked him tough questions and it seemed weird to me that he didn’t have an answer to them all, particularly on the hot topics of vetting immigrants for “Canadian values.”
I’m sure he’s tougher now. More experienced. I hope so.
Because the attacks are starting already.
The Liberals and the Media Party are going to demonize him, like they did with Preston Manning and Stockwell Day.
Look for the CBC to start ramping up their attacks this week, and going after Scheer’s family.
And us at The Rebel? I’ll tell you what I think our job is going forward.
