When LGBT people have faced violence and harassment in Canada or around the world, he's been silent. Just like most conservatives of his ilk.
Yet when the Governor General says that facts are more important than beliefs when speaking at a conference of scientists, and Justin Trudeau doesn't throw her under a bus for making sense, look who's picking up a bat once again for his religious friends, who love to offend others with their "free speech" but God forbid somebody offend them with theirs.
Memo to Scheer and other conservatives (like Jason Kenney) who only seem to care about the rights of religious people or those exactly like them, but no one else: stop appealing to human rights as a defense against alleged disrespect. If you don't support human rights for all, appealing to human rights for some is bullshit.
In doing so, you sound like the hypocrites you are!
