Last Updated Thursday, September 3, 2020 4:45PM EDTOTTAWA -- Former Conservative leader and sitting MP Andrew Scheer was met with fierce opposition in Regina on Thursday when he heldto celebrate the 'positive contributions' of John A. Macdonald — just days after a statue of the former prime minister was toppled and decapitated during a protest in Montreal.

"If we look back at our rich history and study the leading figures in its telling, and see only the blemishes, then we are missing out on the beautiful story of a wonderful country that is always, constantly bettering itself." "We are a country of laws, and we are a country that needs to respect those laws even as we seek to improve and change them," Trudeau said in Montreal on Monday.

"Symbols of hate encourage the mental oppression of marginalized people and serve as reminders to all people of the inequitable imbalance of power and encourage white supremacist attitudes," the post read.

The left is so tolerant. LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder LiberalPrivilege LiberalPrivilege

I wonder if johnnies head will pop off when this one hits the ground too....

CTV News how many times does the media have to run this? Been seeing this all day. Amazing how much infatuation MSM has for Andrew Scheer. Unbelievable! Sad when he gets more coverage then the PM. .

“Protesters”? Call them for what they really are — ANTIFA terrorists.

Lock them up

CTV what happened to the Sir?

5 people is a mob?CTV is the new CNN.

This explains why this idiot would never be prime minister. Thought you moved to US to be Trumps lapdog

Trudeau is busy campaigning virtually so he won’t face protesters. Not that the media would ever report that anyway.

Why are they having a John A MacDonald rally?

“If we replace cancel culture with critical thinking, we can have a heartfelt conversation instead of emotional reactions.”....................Andrew Scheer. (only adults will understand this concept, whiners, haters and screeching shrills won't).

Times are tough for Sir John A. Macdonald impersonatorBrian Porter takes a dim view of calls to remove Macdonald statues. \u0027He is being portrayed by some as solely a one\u002Ddimensional racist\u0027 Sad. I remember just 9 years ago, my daughter wanted MacDonald for her 3rd birthday party. Couldn’t get him. We had to settle for Disraeli, which was terrible because, well, you know.

Police, protesters clash in Bulgaria as thousands rally to call for PM Boyko Borissov’s resignationProtesters accuse Borissov and Chief Prosecutor Ivan Geshev of failing to fight the corruption that erodes the rule of law and benefits powerful tycoons in the European Union’s poorest country If this happened in Canada (and it should), the left wing media would call it 'far right' protests or not cover it at all.

Don Martin: Decapitating Macdonald's statue a wrong-headed take on historyDonMartinCTV We'd better put them Hitler statues back up then - wouldn't want to offend the conservative snowflakes DonMartinCTV It is not wrong. Imagine being an indigenous man , woman or child, and seeing a tribute to a man who ordered the massacre of people who look like you, being honoured. Past time it was gone!! DonMartinCTV American media endorses it. It’s at least refreshing to see some Canadian media standing up against it.
