the decades long climate change denying statements/claims of wingnut CPC MP/candidate Cheryl Gallant are well documented. And now thanks to recent days scrutiny on her most brazen personal attacks against PM Trudeau (the hanging PM image being her most recent), it's come to light that she's also been fronting a conspiracy theory video where she claims PM Trudeau/Liberals are... "planning a climate lockdown"... referring to the federal government implementing personal and corporate restrictions in order to curb the long-term effects of climate change.

at separate media Q/A's, CPC/O'Toole was repeatedly asked if he found Gallant's statements and claims acceptable - per his norm, O'Toole refused to answer the questions directly. Eventually Gallant's Youtube channel videos were scrubbed and O'Toole, without mentioning Gallant by name, issued a statement: "Any candidates who donít support my plan on climate change, or any other part of my platform, will not be part of a future Conservative caucus." Wow, so... hard hitting!

And I'm sure nuance is not your strong suit.

more nuance, hey? Claiming PM Trudeau is complicit in the spread of COVID-19... nuance, right member Boges - nuance!

oh, and a correction: CPC MP Gallant didn't actually scrub her videos from Youtube - apparently, she just made them private!
