ya ya, weakAndy - so courageous... so wise

Global News has learned Scheer will announce imminently that he will be stepping down from the party leadership after losing the last election. His resignation comes as a direct result of new revelations that he was using Conservative Party money to pay for his children’s private schooling. Senior Conservatives say the expenditures were made without the knowledge or approval of the Conservative fund board, including the chair of the board.

I guess the massive social media push to keep Scheer (3 back benchers and a $12 website) didn’t work as well as hoped....

Well, if the Reform-western wing of the party doesn’t select another social conservative climate denier as their party leader, they should be able to do alright in the next election.

However, party members will be selecting a leader....   and party members boo’ed Michael Chong at their convention for the audacity of believing climate change is real and proposing to reduce carbon emissions.

How much has the membership stepped into this century in the CPC?   I am willing to bet that they haven’t progressed much, if at all.

Maybe Trump can move across the border if the impeachment thing is successful and take over from Scheer. I'm not sure where Donny is on abortion but by gawd the coal mines would be back in business big time.

Well, apparently he put the party first when deciding who should pay for his kids' education.

Considering the taxpayer footed the over $215,000 bill for Trudeau's Bahama's vacation, Liberals shouldn't be throwing stones.

I guess Ottawa private schools are more expensive than Regina private schools.

I imagine Trudeau is sad to see him go. He may have to work a little harder next election, depending who the CPC selects to replace their current leader.

I don't know where I sit on the party paying for his kids private education. On one hand I don't directly contribute to the party so they can do whatever they want with it. On the other hand however the taxpayer does subsidize the party by 75% tax deductions so yes in fact the taxpayer is subsidizing 75% of his kids private education (less whatever he pays himself). That however is a more general problem I have with this 75% party funding.

I agree....   I’m not sure it’s reached a “scandal” if this is normally what the party does.   I personally wouldn’t like it if a party I belonged to did it, but I am not a party member.   I wonder if other parties do this....?

Apparently, we found out that Scheer was legitimately an expert on ethics violations.
