“Make Canada Great Again” hats. “Proud Nationalist” signs. Even a Nazi salute. These have all been seen among the ranks of “Yellow Vesters”, as part of their convoy that just arrived in Ottawa. [1]
 
What began with legitimate concerns over job loss in a dying oil and gas industry has become a movement plagued with racist vitriol, fighting to close the borders to immigrants. Now it’s a home for the hateful far-right.
 
But rather than speaking out against this hate, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer is normalizing it by wholeheartedly supporting the Vesters and even sharing a stage with a known white supremacist at their rally on Parliament Hill. [2]

It’s unacceptable for a leader of a major political party to give hate such a platform.
 
And too much media coverage is ignoring it too, by simply calling this a “pro-pipeline” protest, [3] helping Scheer get away with his unadulterated support. A huge petition demanding Scheer condemns their hate could blow the lid off of this facade. Every moment we don’t act gives their normalized hate time to fester -- and spread.

Will you add your name to demand Scheer stop normalizing hate and condemn the Yellow Vest elements spawning bigotry and violence before any more racism is normalized?
 
 

To Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer

Condemn the racist and violent elements embedded in the Yellow Vest movement.
