The Honourable Andrew Scheer, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and of the Official Opposition, will hold a press conference to discuss Justin Trudeau’s $900 million scandal and the many questions that Canadians have. Conservatives will not rest until Canadians have answers.
Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer held a press conference on Monday, heavily criticizing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for the $900 million We Charity scandal, as well as the "complex web of rules" in the Trudeau government's wage subsidy plan.
Scheer highlighted the poor decisions made by the Trudeau government with their wage subsidy plan, calling on the government to make measures simpler that also incentivize work.
Scheer criticized Trudeau for taking a personal day in the midst of a scandal: "I planned to ask the prime minister about his lack of a plan today. I also planned to ask him about his $900 million scandal, and ask him when he would be appearing at committee to testify. But instead of showing up to answer questions, as he said he would last week, he's taking a personal day today."
Scheer continued: "He chose the date at which the House of Commons would convene, and he's not showing up for work today."
Scheer said that Trudeau "could not hide" from the scandal, saying that Trudeau "made a choice to hand almost a billion dollars to a charity that has paid multiple members of his immediate family almost $300,000."
Scheer said that the consequences of breaking ethics rules need to be revamped, as Trudeau has already been found guilty of breaking those rules twice.
"It used to be that, being found guilty of an ethics violation was enough for ministers to resign. That obviously doesn't hold true in the Liberal Party of Canada," said Scheer, challenging Liberal MPs to "do the right thing," asking them to make the choice on whether or not they are comfortable with the PM's corruption.
