“All Proper Procedures Were Followed”: Conservative Party President Says Party Offered To Help Scheer Pay For Children’s Schooling Expenses

Statement by Party President follows after Global News report alleging party funds were used.

Following a Global News report that there was anger within the Conservative Fund about party expenses being used to pay for Andrew Scheer’s children’s private schooling, the Conservative Party President has released a statement.

The statement reads as follows:

“As is the normal practice for political parties, the Party offered to reimburse some of the costs associated with being a national leader and re-locating the family to Ottawa.

Shortly after Mr. Scheer was elected leader, we had a meeting where I made a standard offer to cover costs associated with moving his family from Regina to Ottawa. All proper procedures were followed and signed off on by the appropriate people.”

The statement doesn’t directly refute the Global story. Additionally, some are now saying that Scheer had been warned a story about the expenses was forthcoming, and contributed to his decision to resign.

It seems clear that no laws were broken, and this is about perceptions. And further, the fact that this story was apparently leaked internally in the first place shows the division within the Conservative Party.

I believe Mr Scheer to be a good and decent man, albeit too passive to be the efffective leader that we need.

Part of me is sorry to see him resign, especially like this, but a new and more dynamic leader is necessary for the good of both the Conservative Party and our poor, suffering Country.

Making a choice from the talent likely to compete for the leadership is not going to be easy.

Is it possible that the bottom feeders who allegedly leaked this are are actually Liberal operatives with links to Global News? $600 million was given out before the election to such creeps.

That is supposed to make us trust again? Politicians must be transparent and honest, it is costly to move your family and get them settled in, but they are already making the big bucks and will be handling really big bucks if elected so must be open and honest. They must realize that the Conservative voting general public has been greatly lied to and watched dishearteningly while our countries money, trust, dignity, integrity, ethics, free trade, companies, open boarders, jobs and trust in the mainstream media etc. has been totally squandered by the radical lieberal/ndp/green/block parties and our only hope… Read more »

It’s the ‘Conservatives’ who are squandering our future. They are sacrificing the future of our world for the profit of their favourite corporations. We need to rescue our country from the ‘elites’ the kind of people who can put their kids into private schools while they they work to destroy our public education system.

A cut throat business, politics. Andrew trusted the wrong person.
Honest people are not made for this game. That is why Justin in back in.

Politics is a blood sport and Mr. Scheer metaphorically always brought his pen knife to the fight with Trudeau and the cabal who used AR15’s
