Scheer\u0027s failure to defeat the Liberals was linked, in part, to his inability to clearly articulate his position on social conservative issues

That the House is sitting at all this month though is something Scheer himself took some credit for Tuesday as he briefly reflected on his achievements during a news conference.

In addition to being an MP from Regina since 2004, he also served as the Speaker of the House of Commons from 2011 to 2015. That failure was linked in part to Scheer’s personal inability to clearly articulate his position on social conservative issues. There were also factors that ate away at his credibility — a claim to being an insurance salesman when he never completed the licensing requirements and not disclosing he was a dual American-Canadian citizen.

The vote is taking place by mail, and all ballots must be back by Aug. 21. A winner is expected to be announced within days, and very likely before the next sitting of the Commons on Aug. 26. While a by-election is looming in the riding of York Centre, thanks to the resignation of the Liberal MP there, neither Lewis nor MacKay’s campaigns have committed to having their candidate run for that seat.

Thanks Andrew

He accomplished nothing anyways

Excellent, now he’ll have plenty of spare time to spend with his one true love. Milk.

Finally!!

Don't let the door hit ya in the ass when ya leave.

We’ve been waiting for this for a LONG time - especially after him saying that the leader who loses the election should resign immediately.

Time for popcorn and a sippy cup at home... bye bye Pandrew AndrewScheer too bad so sad

Wrong guy leaving!

Thank you Mr. Scheer for your service to Canadians!!👍

Yet the three-peat unethical PM champ holed up like a guilty criminal remains.

Took him too long to get his mojo.

🥳

I wonder if he's excited about entering the work force for the first time.

Please let the new leader be L. Lewis. I just want to see the media lose their minds and all their talking points used to smear white men.
