Andrew Scheer on the campaign trail | Day 9

Andrew Scheer on the campaign trail | Day 9


AS WE’VE BEEN HEARING MORE AND MORE IN THIS CAMPAIGN, THE ANSWER IS NOT JUSTIN TRUDEAU. HE HAS ACCUMULATED TAX AND DEFICITS OVER FOUR YEARS. JUSTIN TRUDEAU DOESN’T KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO RAISE A FAMILY IN DIFFICULT CONDITIONS. AND TO FACE RETIREMENT ON A FIXED INCOME.>>AND THE CHOICE OF THE ELECTION ON OCTOBER 21 IS THIS — WHO DO YOU TRUST TO HELP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO GET AHEAD? AS WE HEAR MORE AND MORE, THE ANSWER IS NOT JUSTIN TRUDEAU WHO HAS BEEN RACKING UP TAXES AND DEFICITS FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS. JUSTIN TRUDEAU DOESN’T KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO RAISE A FAMILY IN DIFFICULT CONDITIONS OR TO LIVE ON A FIXED INCOME IN RETIREMENT. [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: AT EVERY TIME AND IN EVERY REGION IN A DIFFICULT ECONOMIC CONTEXT, IT IS OFTEN THE MOST ELDERLY INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE FACING A NUMBER OF CHALLENGES TO THEIR ECONOMIC SITUATION. THE SITUATION OF THESE INDIVIDUALS IS THAT MUCH MORE PRECARIOUS BECAUSE THEY ARE LIVING ON A FIXED INCOME. FOR MOST OF THEM, EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS. BUT UNFORTUNATELY THEY HAVE NO WAY OF INCREASING THEIR INCOME. THEY ARE AT THE MERCY OF GOVERNMENTS WHOSE POOR MANAGEMENT IS POSING A HIGHER COST OF LIVING. SENIORS ARE NOT THE PEOPLE — YET SENIORS ARE THE ONES THAT MOST WANTER OUR ATTENTION. THEY HAVE DEVOTED THEIR LIVES TO WORK, TO THEIR FAMILY AND TO THEIR COMMUNITIES.>>BUT SENIORS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO DESERVE OUR ATTENTION AND SUPPORT THE MOST. THEY DEDICATED THEIR LIVES TO THEIR WORK, THEIR FAMILY AND THEIR COMMUNITY.>>Interpreter: IF YOU LOOK AROUND, YOU WILL SEE THE IMPRINT OF THE WORK OF YOUR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS. TODAY, I AM THEREFORE ANNOUNCING A NEW MEASURE, A NEW FISCAL MEASURE THAT WILL IMPROVE THE DAILY LIVES OF RETIREES. THE CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT, IF REELECTED, WILL INCREASE THE AGE CREDIT BY $1,000 PER PERSON. A PERSON AGED 75 WITH REVENUE OF $38,000 WILL RECEIVE $750 MORE.>>ON OCTOBER 21 WILL INCREASE THE AGE CREDIT BY $1,000 PER SENIOR. IN 2020, AN INDIVIDUAL OF OVER 65 YEARS EARNING UP TO $38,000 WILL RECEIVE UP TO $150 MORE PER YEAR. FOR A COUPLE, IT WILL BE UP TO $300 MORE PER YEAR. [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: AS THE CREDIT IS CALCULATED BASED ON INCOME, IT WILL MEAN MORE FOR SENIORS WITH LOW INCOMES OR MIDDLE INCOMES AND I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT WHEN I AM PRIME MINISTER, THE WELFARE OF THOSE WHO CONTRIBUTED TO BUILDING THIS COUNTRY WILL BE A PRIORITY FOR ME. S THE MEASURE I’M ANNOUNCING TODAY IS PART OF OUR PLAN TO PUT MORE MONEY IN THE POCKETS OF CANADIANS. WE WILL PUT AN END TO A HIGH COST OF LIVING AS A RESULT OF THE IRRESPONSIBLE SPENDING OF JUSTIN TRUDEAU. UNDER MY LEADERSHIP, A CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT WILL LIVE WITHIN ITS MEANS.>>IT’S PART OF OUR PLAN TO PUT MORE MONEY BACK IN THE POCKETS OF CANADIANS. WE’LL END THE RISING COST OF LIVING RESULTING FROM THE HIGHER TAXES AND INCREASED DEBT. WE’LL LIVE WITHIN OUR MEANS. [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: THIS COMMITMENT CAN BE ADDED TO THE OTHER COMMITMENTS THAT RESPOND TO THE CONCERNS OF QUEBECERS AND CANADIANS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. A SINGLE TAX RETURN, THE ELIMINATION OF G.S.T. ON HYDRO AND HOME HEATING BILLS. THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A TAX CREDIT FOR THE USE OF PUBLIC TRANTION SIT AND LOWER TAXES FOR EVERYONE. $850 MORE IN THE POCKETS OF FAMILIES. WE ARE DOING ALL OF THIS BY BALANCING THE BUDGET AND WE WILL RESPECT OUR COMMITMENT TO INCREASE TRANSFERS TO THE PROVINCES FOR HEALTH AND SOCIAL PROGRAMMES. MY GOVERNMENT WILL LIVE WITHIN ITS MEANS AND PUT MORE MONEY IN YOUR POCKETS. MY COMMITMENT IS CLEAR. MORE FOR YOU NOW. THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND I’M READY TO TAKE YOUR QUESTIONS. [APPLAUSE]>>Interpreter: MR. SCHEER, COMING BACK TO THE CONTROVERSY OF RECENT HOURS. WHAT IS WORSE, THE BROWNFACE OR THE HOMOPHOBIC AND ANTI-FRANCOPHONE COMMENT MADE BY SOME OF YOUR CANDIDATES? WELL, IT’S CLEAR THAT SBOL RANTS — INTOLERANT COMMENTS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE. THE THING THAT BOTHERS ME MOST IS THAT JUSTIN TRUDEAU LIED LAST NIGHT WHEN HE WAS ASKED IF THERE WERE OTHER INCIDENTS. HE MENTIONED ONLY ONE. BUT IT’S CLEAR THIS MORNING, BECAUSE WE’RE LEARNING THAT THERE ARE AT LEAST THREE. SO HE IS IN THE HABIT OF SAYING THIS SORT OF THING.>>Reporter: [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: YOU’RE SAYING THAT FOR YOUR CANDIDATES, YOU ACCEPT THEIR APOLOGIES IF THEY TAKE RESPONSIBILITY. SO DOES THE SAME THING APPLY TO YOU OR TO MR. TRUDEAU? DO YOU ACCEPT HIS APOLOGY? CANADIANS COULD HAVE ACCEPTED AN APOLOGY FROM JUSTIN TRUDEAU IF WHAT HE SAID WAS TRUE. BUT HE LIED WHILE HE WAS APOLOGIZING. SO THIS IS NOT A REAL APOLOGY WHEN IT IS BASED ON A LIE. WELL, I THINK CANADIANS MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACCEPT JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S APOLOGY IF HE HADN’T LIED ABOUT IT. BUT HE WAS ASKED SPECIFICALLY IF THERE ARE OTHER INCIDENTS AND HE SAID THAT THERE WAS ONLY ONE OTHER INCIDENT. NOW WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE AT LEAST THREE AND A LIE — AN APOLOGY BASED ON A LIE IS NOT A REAL APOLOGY.>>Reporter: MR. SCHEER, GOOD MORNING. LET ME GO BACK TO YOU WITH THAT SAME QUESTION. YOU KNOW, A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO TO US ON THE PLANE, YOU SAID AND I QUOTE, IF THERE IS ANYTHING THAT HAD BEEN SAID IN THE PAST, THIS IS IN REFERENCE TO SOME OF YOUR OWN CONTROVERSIAL CANDIDATES, THAT HAS CAUSED ANY TYPE OF HURT OR DISRESPECT TO ONE COMMUNITY OR ANOTHER AND HAVE APOLOGIZE FOR THAT, I ACCEPT THAT. DO YOU, THEREFORE, BY YOUR OWN STANDARD, ACCEPT MR. TRUDEAU’S APOLOGY AND SHOULD CANADIANS?>>AS I SAID, I BELIEVE THAT CANADIANS MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACCEPT HIS APOLOGY IF HE HAD BEEN TRUTHFUL AND OPEN. IF HE HADN’T BASED THAT APOLOGY ON A LIE. BUT HE WAS SPECIFICALLY ASKED IF THERE WERE OTHER INCIDENTS WHERE HE ENGAGED IN THIS TYPE OF RACIST BEHAVIOUR AND HE INDICATED THAT THERE WAS ONLY ONE OTHER INCIDENT AND NOW WE KNOW THERE WAS AT LEAST THREE. ONCE AGAIN, WE SEE WITH JUSTIN TRUDEAU ONE SET OF RULES FOR HIMSELF AND ONE SET OF RULES FOR THE REST OF US.>>Reporter: HAVE YOU, YOURSELF, DRESSED IN ANY WAY THAT HAS STEREOTYPED OR OFFENDED ANYBODY’S RACE OR CULTURE IN THE PAST THAT YOU’D LIKE TO TALK ABOUT?>>NO.>>Reporter: [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: LA PRESSE. A NUMBER OF ANALYSTS IN RECENT HOURS HAVE SAID THAT THESE EVENTS OCCURRED MANY YEARS AGO. I’M SORRY. COULD YOU REPEAT THAT? I DIDN’T HEAR YOU. YES. A NUMBER OF PEOPLE ARE POINTING OUT THAT THESE EVENTS THAT TOOK PLACE MANY YEARS AGO, THE IMAGE ON GLOBAL, THE ARTICLE THAT APPEARED YESTERDAY AND THE SOCIAL CONTEXT HAS CHANGED A GREAT DEAL IN TERMS OF WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE AND WHAT ISN’T. DO YOU HAVE THE SENSE THAT SOCIAL STANDARDS HAVE CHANGED IN RECENT DECADES THAT MEAN THAT THINGS THAT WERE UNACCEPTABLE BEFORE ARE NOT AS UNACCEPTABLE NOW? WELL, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ONE EVENT THAT OCCURED IN 2011. BUT THE FACT IS YESTERDAY MR. TRUDEAU WAS ASKED IF THERE WERE OTHER TIMES HE HAD BEEN INVOLVED IN THESE INCIDENTS AND HE SAID ONLY ONCE. SO THE PROBLEM FOR MR. TRUDEAU IS THAT HE BASED HIS APOLOGY ON A LIE. SO THAT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM. AND AGAIN TODAY WITH MR. TRUDEAU, IT IS CLEAR THAT HE HAS ONE STANDARD FOR EVERYONE ELSE, BUT HE DOESN’T APPLY THAT STANDARD TO HIMSELF. SO WHAT YOU DON’T LIKE IS THE FACT THAT HE LIED. SO HIS APOLOGY FOR THOSE PAST ACTIONS, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE? IN TERMS OF ACCEPTABILITY? AS I SAID, I COULD HAVE ACCEPTED HIS APOLOGY YESTERDAY HAD HE BEEN HONEST AND TRANSPARENT, BUT IT IS CLEAR THAT HE BASED HIS APOLOGY ON A LIE. HE SAID THERE WAS ONLY ONE OTHER INSTANCE AND THIS MORNING, WE LEARNED THAT THERE IS AT LEAST ONE OTHER CASE. THIS IS A FURTHER EXAMPLE OF HIS NOT TELTING THE TRUTH.>>Reporter: ARE YOU CONCERNED THAT THIS ELECTION THERE IS NO DANGER OF [INAUDIBLE] NOT DEALING WITH THE REAL ISSUES THAT ARE FACING CANADIANS?>>Reporter: AS YOU CAN SEE, EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THIS CAMPAIGN HAS INCREASED CONCRETE PROPOSALS TO MAKE LIFE MORE AFFORDABLE FOR CANADIANS. WE INTRODUCED TAX CUTS AND MEASURES THAT WILL MAKE LIFE MORE AFFORDABLE FOR CANADIANS AND PUT MORE MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS TO HELP THEM GET AHEAD. THAT IS THE FOCUS OF EVERY ANNOUNCEMENT WE’VE MADE SO FAR, INCLUDING AS TO HOW WE’RE GOING TO PAY FOR IT AS YESTERDAY WE INDICATED WE WOULD CUT $1.5 BILLION IN CORPORATE WELFARE GOING TO HIGHLY PROFITABLE COMPANIES AND LINE THE POCKETS OF SHAREHOLDERS. WE’LL MAKE LIFE MORE AFFORDABLE FOR CANADIANS. THAT IS CERTAINLY OUR FOCUS.>>Reporter: HI, MR. SCHEER. KATIE SIMPSON, CBC NEWS. WHEN DID YOU OR ANY MEMBERS OF YOUR TEAM LEARN MATERIALS EXISTED SHOWING MATERIALS IN A RACIST WAY?>>I FIRST BECAME AWARE OF THE PHOTOS LAST NIGHT WHEN “TIME” MAGAZINE PUBLISHED THEM.>>Reporter: I’M NOT JUST SPECIFICALLY TALKING ABOUT “TIME” MAGAZINE, BUT ANY PHOTOS. ANY PHOTOS OR VIDEOS OR ANY MATERIALS?>>WELL, I FIRST BECAME AWARE OF THE PHOTOS LAST TIME BY “TIME” MAGAZINE. I SAW THE VIDEO THIS MORNING WHEN I SAW IT ON GLOBAL NEWS.>>Reporter: WHAT ABOUT MEMBERS OF YOUR TEAM?>>I CAN SAY AS IT RELATES TO THE VIDEO THATS A CONCERNED INDIVIDUAL WHO DID SEE THIS VIDEO DID BRING IT TO OUR CAMPAIGN AND OUR CAMPAIGN TURNED IT OVER TO A RESPONSIBLE NEWS OUTLET FOR VERIFICATION. SO THAT IS MY KNOWLEDGE. [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: YES, THE FIRST TIME I SAW THOSE PHOTOS AND BECAME AWARE OF THEM WAS WHEN “TIME” MAGAZINE PUBLISHED THEM ON SOCIAL MEDIA. AND THE FIRST TIME I SAW THE VIDEO WAS THIS MORNING AND I KNOW THAT SOMEONE SAW THE VIDEO AND WAS VERY CONCERNED ABOUT IT AND PROVIDED IT TO OUR CAMPAIGN AND WE LOOKED ON SOCIAL MEDIA TO VERIFY AND I SAW THE VIDEO MYSELF THIS MORNING.>>Reporter: HAS YOUR CAMPAIGN KNOWN ABOUT THIS MATERIAL FOR WEEK, IF NOT MONTHS. IF SO, WHY SIT ON IT? IF THIS IS SUCH AN URGENT THING THAT CANADIANS NEED TO BE AWARE OF, AND AS WE’VE SEEN IN THE PAST 24 HOURS, OBVIOUSLY THAT IS, WHY SIT ON THE MATERIALS?>>AS I SAID, I FIRST BECAME AWARE OF THE PHOTOS LAST NIGHT WHEN “TIME” MAGAZINE PUBLISHED THEM. I FIRST SAW THE VIDEO THIS MORNING WHEN IT WAS PUBLISHED THIS MORNING AND I CAN SAY THAT THERE WAS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO WAS CONCERNED BY THIS AND BROUGHT IT TO OUR CAMPAIGN AND OUR CAMPAIGN DID TURN IT OVER TO A NEWS OUTLET FOR VERIFICATION THAT WE LEFT IN THEIR HANDS.>>Reporter: WHEN? WHEN?>>I PERSONALLY SAW THE VIDEO THIS MORNING AND THE PHOTOS LAST NIGHT.>>Reporter: MR. SCHEER, [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: JUSTIN TRUDEAU HAS ALWAYS PRESENTED HIMSELF AS A DEFENDER OF MULTICULTURALISM. NOW DO YOU THINK THAT THAT DEFENDER OF DIVERSITY IS NOW IN QUESTION NOW? WELL, THERE ARE MANY ASPECTS OF JUSTIN TRUDEAU WHERE HE WAS NOT THE PERSON HE WAS CLAIMING TO BE. AND I WANT TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO REMIND YOU OF WHAT JAGMEET SINGH SAID. BECAUSE HIS WORDS ARE AUTHENTIC AND AS SOMEONE WHO WAS THE VICTIM OF RACIST ACTS IN THE PAST, HE RESPONDED TO THIS ISSUE WITH AUTHENTICITY AND A LOT OF COMPASSION.>>I MIGHT TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO HIGHLIGHT THE RESPONSE FROM JAGMEET SINGH. I THOUGHT HE SHOWED GENUINE CONCERN AND AS SOMEONE WHO OBVIOUSLY HAS BEEN VICTIM OF THESE TYPES OF THINGS IN A WAY THAT I NEVER HAVE, I THINK HE RESPONDED WITH A LOT OF KLASSEN A DIGNITY AND OBVIOUSLY HE WAS SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF SO MANY CANADIANS WHO HAD BEEN VICTIMS OF A RACIST ACT OR MOCKERY LIKE THAT.>>Reporter: [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WONDERING SINCE LAST EVENING IF MR. TRUDEAU IS A RACIST. IS HE A RACE ?*IS WELL, HE DID SOMETHING THAT WAS RACIST. AND HE LIED ABOUT THE EXTENT OF SUCH ACTIVITIES. I THINK THAT CANADIANS CAN SEE THAT HIS APOLOGY IS BASED ON A LIE. IT’S NOT A REAL APOLOGY.>>Reporter: DO YOU BELIEVE THAT HE SHOULD RESIGN?>>I BELIEVE THAT HE SHOULD HAVE RESIGNED WHEN HE LIED TO CANADIANS OVER THE SNC-LAVALIN AFFAIR. HE’S LONG LOST THE MORAL AUTHORITY TO GOVERN AND AFTER HIS INABILITY TO TELL THE TRUTH LAST NIGHT, HE IS CONTINUING TO SHOW CANADIANS THAT HE IS NOT FIT TO GOVERN THIS COUNTRY. THAT HE IS NOT WILLING TO HOLD HIMSELF TO THE STANDARDS THAT HE’S ASKED OTHER PEOPLE TO HOLD THEMSELVES TO. AND THAT HE CAN’T TELL THE TRUTH TO CANADIANS. SO I DO BELIEVE THAT HE IS NOT FIT TO GOVERN THIS COUNTRY AND HE’S LOST THE MORAL AUTHORITY TO GOVERN. OUI. [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: YES, I CALLED ON MR. TRUDEAU TO RESIGN WHEN CANADIANS LEARNED THAT HE HAD LIED IN THE SNC-LAVALIN AFFAIR. HE LIED DIRECTLY AND HE HAS LOST THE MORAL AUTHORITY TO GOVERN. LAST NIGHT HE CONTINUINGED NOT TO TELL THE TRUTH. HE SAID SOMETHING THAT WAS UNTRUE. AND HE IS NOT WORTHY OF GOVERNING THIS COUNTRY AND I CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THAT AS I SAID LAST NIGHT.>>Reporter: [INAUDIBLE] STORY, DO YOU THINK THAT TRUDEAU’S ACTIONS HAVE DAMAGED THE COUNTRY’S REPUTATION WITH THIS ON THE WORLD STAGE?>>I BELIEVE THAT JUSTIN TRUDEAU HAS EMBARRASSED CANADA ON THE WORLD STAGE IN THE PAST AND THIS CERTAINLY DOES NOT HELP HIS OWN SITUATION OR THAT OF OUR COUNTRY. ONE MORE REASON WHY I DON’T BELIEVE HE’S FIT TO GOVERN THIS COUNTRY.>>Reporter: GOOD MORNING. ARE YOU ASKING YOUR CANDIDATES IF THEY HAVE WORN BLACKFACE OR BROWNFACE AND HAVE ANY OF THEM?>>I THINK IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERLINE THAT WEARING BLACKFACE AND MOCKERY AND ENGAGING IN THESE TYPES OF OFFENSIVE TYPES OF BEHAVIOURS IS UNACCEPTABLE. WE’VE HAD A VETING PROCESS FOR OUR OWN CANDIDATES TO ENSURE THAT THESE THINGS DON’T HAPPEN IN THE PAST. WE EXPECT THAT THEY LIVE UP TO THAT STANDARD AND THAT THEY HAVE LIVED UP TO THAT STANDARD.>>Reporter: ARE YOU GOING BACK TO REVET THESE CANDIDATES? THERE IS A PHOTO CIRCULATING ONLINE NOW THAT APPEARS TO SHOW YOUR CANDIDATE IN LANGLEY, TAMARA JANSEN, WEARING BLACKFACE.>>TO MY KNOWLEDGE, SHE HERSELF HAS NOT AND CERTAINLY SHE HAS NOT AND SHE HAS NOT LIED ABOUT IT. I DON’T BELIEVE IT’S THE SAME COMPARISON AT ALL TO JUSTIN TRUDEAU WHO PERSONALLY HAS BEEN SHOWN TO CONDUCT HIMSELF LIKE THAT AND UNABLE TO TELL THE TRUTH TO CANADIANS ABOUT IT.>>Reporter: MY FOLLOW-UP IS CAN YOU REFLECT ON YOUR OWN PAST AND TELL CANADIANS IF THERE ARE ANY INSTANCES THAT YOU REGRET?>>I THINK LIKE EVERY HUMAN BEING, I’M NOT PERFECT. YOU KNOW, I’VE NEVER CLAIMED TO HANDLE EVERY SITUATION PROPERLY AND I CONTINUE TO REFLECT ON THAT AND TRY TO IMPROVE MYSELF AS A HUMAN BEING. IN CONDUCTING MYSELF, DO I REGRET ANYTHING IN MY LIFE? WELL, NOT A SPECIFIC INSTANCE. I’M NOT PRETENDING TO BE A PERFECT HUMAN BEING IN EVERY WAY. BUT NOTHING LIKE THIS AT ALL. NO. NO. NOTHING LIKE THAT AT ALL. NOTHING THAT WOULD RISE TO THIS LEVEL.>>Interpreter: I’M NOT PERFECT AND I DON’T CLAIM TO BE A SAINT. BUT NOTHING WOULD COME UP TO THAT LEVEL.>>Reporter: GOOD MORNING, MR. SCHEER. IT IS TECHNICALLY STILL MORNING. BENSON COOK OF BELL TALK RADIO NETWORK. A LOT OF PEOPLE IN MONTREAL SAID THEY WERE UPSET ABOUT THESE IMAGES, THESE VIDEOS OF MR. TRUDEAU. BUT THEY DON’T KNOW WHO ELSE TO VOTE FOR. HOW DO YOU CONVINCE CANADIANS VOTING CONSERVATIVE IS THE WAY TO GO.>>THAT’S WHAT THIS ELECTION IS ALL ABOUT. PUT MORE MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS SO THEY CAN GET AHEAD. THAT IS WHY EVERY MORNING WE’RE MAKING EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENTS ABOUT LOWERING TAXES, MAKING LIFE MORE AFFORDABLE. WE’LL DON’TS DO THAT, TO DO EXACTLY THAT, TO CONVINCE CANADIANS AND PUT THEIR TRUSTS IN A CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT.>>Reporter: MY FOLLOW-UP. YOU ARE IN QUEBEC TODAY. THERE IS A DIFFERENT CULTURAL ATTITUDE GENERALLY TOWARD BLACKFACE, TOWARD BROWNFACE AND RACE GENERALLY IN THIS PROVINCE. HAVE YOU GOTTEN THE SENSE FROM VOTERS THAT YOU HAVE TALKED TO TODAY HERE THAT THIS DOESN’T REALLY MATTER TO THEM?>>SO FAR I’VE GOTTEN THE SENSE THAT THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS INCIDENT. AND I BELIEVE QUEBECER, JUST LIKE ALL CANADIANS, DO NOT ACCEPT ACTS OF INTOLERANCE, OPEN MOCKERY OR RACISM.>>Reporter: [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: BELL MEDIA. NOW A REGIONAL QUESTION. RECENTLY I WAS TALKING TO PORK PRODUCERS HERE WHO WERE SAYING THAT THEY’RE LOSING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS EVERY MONTH AND EVERY YEAR. BECAUSE OF THE CHINESE EMBARGO. AND PRODUCERS IN THE REGION ARE VERY, VERY WORRIED AND THEY HAVE EVEN CALLED ON MRS. BIBEAU TO INTERVENE, BUT SHE HASN’T RESPONDED. NOW WILL YOU ANNOUNCE A PROGRAMME TO HELP THEM? I CAN TELL YOU THAT WE HAVE HEARD THE CRY FOR HELP FROM PRODUCERS IN SASKATCHEWAN, CANOLA PRODUCERS, PORK PRODUCERS IN QUEBEC. THE SITUATION SIMILAR BETWEEN THE TWO REGIONS AND THAT IS ANOTHER REASON WHY WE ARE DISAPPOINTED THAT JUSTIN TRUDEAU HAS DONE PRACTICALLY NOTHING TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUE WITH CHINA. HE WAITED UNTIL ALMOST THE LAST MINUTES TO FILE A COMPLAINT BETWEEN THE WORLD — BEFORE THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION AND WE ASKED HIM TO DO THAT IN THE SPRING, BUT HE DID NOTHING. SO WE’LL HAVE MORE TO SAY ABOUT THAT IN THIS CAMPAIGN. BUT YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT A CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT WILL SUPPORT OUR PRODUCERS AND COMPENSATE THEM. AS A RESULT OF JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S FAILURE AND WE WILL HAVE A BETTER REACTION TOWARDS CHINA IN THIS AFFAIR.>>Reporter: [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: AS I UNDERSTAND IT, THIS TAX CREDIT SHOULD MEAN $150 A YEAR FOR A SINGLE PERSON. $150 PER YEAR IS 42 CENTS A DAY. DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT WILL BE — WILL RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT HEALTH FOR SENIORS. IT MEANS $300 FOR A COUPLE AND THAT IS NOT THE ONLY MEASURE WE’VE ANNOUNCED. $300 IS STILL SIGNIFICANT. FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN RETIREMENT. WE HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT WE WILL LOWER PERSONAL INCOME TAX, ELIMINATE H.S.T. ON HYDRO BILLS AND PROVIDE A TRANSIT CREDIT. ALL OF THESE MEASURES WILL PUT MORE MONEY IN THE POCKETS OF CANADIANS.>>$150 PER PERSON MEANS $300 PER COUPLE, $300 FOR A RETIRED COUPLE IS A GOOD AMOUNT FOR SENIORS. IT GOES ALONG WITH OTHER MEASURES THAT WE ANNOUNCED, LIKE BRINGING BACK THE PUBLIC TRANSIT TAX CREDIT, LIKE MANY SENIORS USE AND ELIMINATING THE G.S.T. AND H.S.T. OFF OF HOME HEATING AND HOME UTILITY BILLS.>>Interpreter: I’D LIKE TO COME BACK TO ONE OF YOUR STATEMENTS. YOU SAID YOU WILL PUT AN TO END THE HIGH COST OF LIVING. THAT IS EXTREMELY AMBITIOUS TO SAY THAT WITH A MEASURE THAT REPRESENTS SOME $150 A YEAR. WELL, OUR TARGET — THAT IS OUR TARGET AND WITH ALL THE MEASURES WE HAVE ANNOUNCED IN THIS CAMPAIGN AND THE OTHERS WE WILL BE ANNOUNCING IN THE COMING DAYS, WE WILL BE TACKLING THE INCREASE IN THE COST OF LIVING FOR ALL CANADIANS. SO, AS A GOVERNMENT, YOU WANT ZERO INFLATION? WELL, AS A GOVERNMENT, WE ARE GOING TO AIM FOR A MORE STABLE COST OF LIVING AND PUT MORE MONEY IN THE POCKETS OF CANADIANS. THAT IS OUR COMMITMENT TO CANADIANS.>>Reporter: [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: APPARENTLY THE FEDERAL PARTIES ARE SPENDING MORE AND MORE MONEY ON Facebook IN THIS CAMPAIGN. NOW DO YOU HAVE SOME CONCERN? ABOUT THE LOCAL MEDIA? I’M SORRY, COULD YOU REPEAT THAT QUESTION? IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO HEAR. ARE YOU PUTTING YOUR ADS IN THE LOCAL MEDIA? WELL, YOU’RE RIGHT. I KNOW THAT THIS IS PART OF THE STRATEGY IN THE LOCAL CAMPAIGN TO PUT ADS IN LOCAL MEDIA AND LOCAL SOCIAL MEDIA AND I KNOW THAT IN MY OWN RIDING, I BOUGHT ADS ON ALL THE WEEKLIES IN MY RIDING. SO I’M SURE THAT IS A STRATEGY FOR ALL THE CAMPAIGNS. NOW I KNOW THERE ARE CERTAIN ASPECTS OF OUR STRATEGY THAT OTHERS ARE USING, WHICH IS TO USE THOSE WEEKLIES. YOU ALSO SAID TO PEOPLE THAT YOU WANT TO RELY ON MARKET SOLUTIONS. NOW DOES THAT MEAN YOUR GOVERNMENT WOULD NOT INTERVENE TO HELP THE MEDIA? I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO HAVE A FREE MARKET AND ENSURE THAT THE SOCIAL MEDIA NEWSPAPERS AND SO FORTH CAN EARN THEIR MONEY FROM THE MARKET WITHOUT THE GOVERNMENT INTERFERING. NOW THE PROBLEM WITH WHAT THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT HAS DONE IS THAT IT’S THE GOVERNMENT DECIDING IF THE NEWSPAPER OR WHICH MEDIA IS GOING TO GET WHAT. I DON’T THINK IT’S UP TO THE GOVERNMENT TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS. SO WE WILL HAVE THINGS TO SAY AS TO HOW WE CAN ENSURE THAT NEWSPAPERS CAN BE PROPERLY COMPENSATED FOR THE CREATION OF THEIR CONTENT. PEOPLE LIKE YOU, FOR EXAMPLE, JOURNALISTS, YOU WRITE ARTICLES AND GOOGLE AND Facebook ARE BRINGING IN ALL THE MONEY BASED ON YOUR WORK. SO, THAT IS NOT RIGHT. SO, WE WANT TO CREATE A SYSTEM WHEREBY THE PEOPLE WHO CREATE THE CONTENT GET THE REVENUE.>>Reporter: YOU’VE BEEN ASKED TO APOLOGIZE FOR THE COMMENTS YOU MADE IN 2005 ABOUT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE. THUS FAR, I DON’T BELIEVE WE HEARD AN APOLOGY. YOU SAID YOU’VE DONE NOTHING THAT RISES TO THE SAME LEVEL AS WHAT WE’RE TAUGHT ABOUT WITH THE PRIME MINISTER TODAY S. THIS ONE OF THE THINGS YOU REGRET AND WHY HAVE YOU NOT APOLOGIZED TO CANADIANS WHO SAID THEY’RE VERY HURT BY WHAT YOU SAID.>>I HAVE REDRESSED THE SPEECH I GAVE IN 2005. BUT WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT TODAY IS JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S BEHAVIOURS AND HIS INABILITY TO BE TRUTHFUL AND HONEST ABOUT IT. WE SAW THAT LAST NIGHT WHEN HE WAS ASKED DIRECTLY IF THERE WERE OTHER EXAMPLES OF IT AND HE FAILED TO BE HONEST.>>Reporter: IN FRENCH.>>Interpreter: YES, I ADDRESSED THAT ISSUE. BUT TODAY WE’RE TALKING ABOUT JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S INABILITY TO SAY THE TRUTH. HE WAS ASKED LAST EVENING IF THERE WERE OTHER INSTANCES AND HE SAID ONLY ONE AND IN REALITY, THERE ARE THREE. SO THIS IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HIS INABILITY TO TELL THE TRUTH.>>Reporter: I’M NOT CLEAR WHEN YOUR CAMPAIGN BECAME AWARE OF THIS VIDEO THAT YOU SAID YOU PASSED ON TO A MEDIA ORGANIZATION. IS THERE ANY OTHER VIDEOS OR EVIDENCE THAT YOU HAVE OF THIS NATURE AND IF YOU DO, WHY HAVE YOU NOT PASSED IT ON AT THIS POINT?>>AS I SAID, I BECAME AWARE OF THE PHOTOS LAST NIGHT WHEN THEY WERE PUBLISHED ON TIME. I BECAME AWARE OF THE VIDEO THIS MORNING. I DO KNOW AS IT RELATES TO THE VIDEO THAT SOMEONE HAD APPROACHED OUR CAMPAIGN WITH IT. WE PASSED IT ON TO A NEWS OUTLET FOR VERIFICATION.>>Reporter: WHEN?>>THAT IS ALL I KNOW. I SAW THE VIDEO FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS MORNING AND THAT THE — THAT INDIVIDUAL WHO WAS CONCERNED BY THE CONTENT OF THAT VIDEO GAVE IT TO OUR CAMPAIGN. WE PASSED ALONG FOR VERIFICATION.>>Reporter: MR. SCHEER, WHAT DO YOU SAY TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE STOOD IN THE PAST WITH FAITH GOLDY.>>WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT A CANDIDATE WHO WOULD HAVE NEVER SERVED FOR A VETTING PROCESS IS THE LIBERAL CANDIDATE FOR PAPINEAU. WHO HAS LIED TO CANADIANS AND INTERFERED IN A CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. AND BROUGHT A CONVICTED TERRORIST ALONG TO A STATE FUNCTION AND ONCE AGAIN HAS LIEED TO CANADIANS AND THAT INDIVIDUAL WOULD NEVER PASS A CONSERVATIVE VETING PROCESS. IF YOU ARE RUNNING FOR PRIME MINISTER, THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THIS LAND, YOU NEED TO BE HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD.>>Reporter: I APPRECIATE THAT ANSWER. IT WASN’T MY QUESTION WHATSOEVER, THOUGH. PEOPLE ARE CALLING YOU HYPOCRITICAL FOR STANDING BY A CANDIDATE WHO ALIGN THEMSELVESS WITH SOMEBODY WHO IS RACIST. THESE ARE PEOPLE OF COLOUR ASKING HOW YOU’RE CLAIMING MORAL HIGH GROUND NOW.>>I CLEARLY WOULD SAY THAT JUSTIN TRUDEAU WHO’S HYPOCRITICAL ON THESE ISSUES AND WHEN HE CAN’T TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT IT, CANADIANS SEE HIM FOR WHAT HE REALLY IS. [SPEAKING FRENCH].>>Interpreter: YES, IT IS CLEAR THAT IT IS JUSTIN TRUDEAU WHO’S A HYPOCRITE ON THESE ISSUES AND CANADIANS CAN SEE THE REAL JUSTIN TRUDEAU IN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH, EVERYONE. [APPLAUSE] [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS]

    Anyone but conservative and PPC

  • Cliff Tomkulak says:

    no NDP just as bad as the libs

  • Virginia Greene says:

    The deeper point is that he – JT – preaches how everyone else should act yet he can.

  • TheGardenerNorth says:

    What the CBC reporter should be asking is. Why doesn't anyone trust us at the CBC to bring a balanced, factual story anymore? Ah! thats because the CBC are just a bunch of Shills for the Liberals.

  • Cliff Tomkulak says:

    people think about this he was a PM son in a multi cultural country and he should have known better for sure and no excuse come on he is continuing to show he is a trust fund baby

  • Virginia Greene says:

    Exactly – he has lost the moral authority to govern our Canada. He will not uphold the standards that he asks the rest of us to uphold! He is a dreadful hypocrite!

  • robert9ish says:

    Behind Scheer's "smiling" face is the greasy hand of thieving elitist pig Doug Ford. Why do you think he's in hiding? This guy is every bit the liar and fraud he complains about… I don't believe a word he says.

  • Virginia Greene says:

    No one is perfect! Of course we all have regrets! We all terrible mistakes! It's not fair how the journalists are treating Andrew. It's obvious they are for JT AND ARE PROTECTING HIM. WHAT ABOUT THEM? HAVE THEY EVER DRESSED UP AND OFFENDED OTHERS? WE ALL HAVE !!!! THAT'S NOT THE POINT! ITS THE LYING AND DECEIVING AND VIRTUE SIGNALING OF JT!!!!!!!!!!! WHY IS THIS SO DIFFICULT TO SEE??????

  • Virginia Greene says:

    JT is in a bucket of water with 12 holes in it. Too bad he only has 10 fingers!

  • Asfand Nasar says:

    I will still be voting liberals, OSAP is hardest to get now since Doug Ford came in . My repayment assistance was declined first time in 2 years.
    Sorry doug ford have ruined it for Conservatives. If premier is looking to make Interest money out of Student loans , I'm not voting for you . get outta here.

  • John Doe says:

    NO MAX AGAIN ! Not hard to see who is paying the CBC cash

  • Virginia Greene says:

    He's going to gave to start using his toes! Let us hope the bucket does not spring more leaks!

  • shane woolsey says:

    The real scary problem we Canadians face in this federal election is a bought and paid for main stream news media, especially the CBC. For example, this comment section is never turned on when Trudeau is the subject of the news. CBC is a joke and your boyfriend JT is going down.

  • Relax Good says:

    The Conservatives were the ones who moved the Old Age Pension from 65 to 67, it was the Liberals who moved it back to 65. Double talk.

  • Racerprose says:

    Andy thinks only Cons can apologize for past mistakes and get away with it. If you are a Liberal, you don't get to apologize and get forgiven.

  • Candy Bonhomme says:

    I watched this on tv and i have never heard such a bad french to english translater in my life! She was terrible

  • v8 dave says:

    yep..The American Conservative party trying to Act Canadian…no vote for you USA puppet

  • Racerprose says:

    Andy confirms, the pictures and video were given to them and they released it to media. So much for Cons saying only the Liberals run dirty campaigns.

  • shane woolsey says:

    PS. Paul Joseph Watson will pay 20 000 US dollars for any one who will turn over the footage of Trudeau in black face and afro wing singing day-o. Does any one realize how much of an international joke Trudeau has turned us into. Just go on line, every news out let around the world has this story and they are laughing their asses off.

  • Lance Dukel says:

    The disinformation Liberal trolls are already hard at work right on this comment section. To clarify : THE ORIGINAL PHOTO OF TRUDEAU IN BROWNFACE WAS NOT RELEASED BY THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF CANADA.
