In Canada, we know that diversity is a tremendous strength – and we've fought hard together to secure and defend the rights and freedoms of all Canadians.
August 15, 2018
As Justin Trudeau has said, "Working to gain freedom for our fellow citizens is a bedrock traditional value in this country – It is in large measure what it means to be Canadian."
But as for Andrew Scheer's Conservatives?
Once again they're showing that they are entirely out of touch with Canadians and this country's commitment to inclusion.
This time, in a Tweet-storm last night from Maxime Bernier, the Conservative MP and former Harper-era Cabinet Minister accused Justin Trudeau of running a "cult of diversity" and wrote that more diversity "will destroy what has made us such a great country."
Is this really today's Conservative Party?
This has become a troubling pattern. With Andrew Scheer silent so far and just 10 days until the Conservative Party's national convention, who really speaks for the Conservatives?
We can never go numb to this kind of politics – or the kind of deep divisiveness and negativity that Canadians rejected in 2015.
The kind of campaign that the Conservatives intend to run in next year's federal election has never been more clear, and it's up to all of us to stand up together and ensure that positive politics wins the day.
Chip in now to stop Andrew Scheer's Conservatives from trying to divide us any further. By making a contribution, you'll be supporting the Liberal team and defending what we know to be true: that Canada is strong not in spite of our differences, but because of them.
