SCHEER: “We Should Not Allow Political Correctness To Erase Our History”

Conservative Leader responds to Victoria politicians removing John A. Macdonald statue from city hall.

Leader of the Opposition Andrew Scheer has responded to the move by Victoria’s mayor and other virtue-signalling politicians to remove a statute of John A. Macdonald from City Hall.

On Twitter, Scheer said “We should not allow political correctness to erase our history. We can look to the past, acknowledge and learn from mistakes, and celebrate achievements at the same time.”

Scheer is so far the only federal party leader who has stood up for Canada’s history against the crazy social justice warrior political correctness of the far left. And it’s almost certain he’ll be the only one who does, since both Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh never seem to miss a chance to pander to the radicals.

Across much of the Western world, the radical left is attempting to erase and/or re-write history, replacing it with a version that only focuses on the negatives, while ignoring the positives. This is meant to destroy national pride, and stop citizens from standing up for the strength and dignity of their country.

That’s why it must be opposed, and Scheer’s pushback (as mild as it was), should be just the starting point for a fight against the danger of political correctness in Canada.

The leftists want to deny the existence of Canadian history, culture and values, especially J.T. Groper. Any mention of Judeo-Christian values, military valor/history and European settlers is to be minimized or denied. Also and almost already successfully denied is our colonial past. We are making it too easy for them I am afraid. Instead of following along with the lefties, the Conservatives should proudly remember the past and embrace a positive future. If we have no past, we have no future.

If Trudeau has his way he’ll replace all the statues of Euro Canadian historical figures with Karl Marx, Che Guevara, Castro, Mao & Stalin. Jagmeet Singh will install the statues of khalistani terrorists at every city square.

Thank you Andrew Scheer. Right now many countries leaders are making mistakes and the puppet leader here in Canada I would like to take down like the statue of John A and I believe there are many other Canadians who would agree, but I also believe we need to remember how bad and destructive this puppet and puppeteers are for the Country. We also hope that if the election is not fixed again, when Andrew Scheer gets in he will do his best to fix this destruction done to our country by these foreign placed puppets, and make sure with… Read more »

This political correctness has gone too far.
If the left wants to remove all remnants of our history because of their misguided thinking, then all statues of Louis Riel shouldbe removed as he was hanged for being a traitor.
LOL…I’m sure that won’t go over well with the left.

The loony left’s example of stupidity. I bet they won’t remove any catholic symbols even though it it was them that hide the atrocities from the government. They would never tell the government at the time that their priests were beating, raping and murdering the native children. We should be looking up the archives to see just what the reports where from the catholic schools.

Revisionism does not change the facts. Removing a statue of Sir John A is the act of a close minded, tunnel visioned, person who doesn’t understand how important it is to learnw about our unvarnished history to see how far we have progressed.

How Sad these foolish people destroying our Canadian history although it was foretold in George Orwell’s book 1984.

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, and every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
George Orwell, 1984

“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

I used to think that controversial statues purpose was to remind us where we have been and to never go there again. After passing a statue of P.E. Trudeau I realized the error of this thinking. To those who find the past uncomfortable and wish to erase it perhaps you can do better when you repeat it. Now let us have a talk about the Vimy Ridge memorial which is in reality a celebration of uncomfortable truth. It causes the heart to be heavy for good reason. As much as I would like all memorials to PET to be melted… Read more »

The political correct crowd only attacks conservative politicans, therefore when they are done only liberal history will remain. They will worship the good parts of liberal history, and ignore/modify the bad parts such as two former liberal PMs who had an affiation with or belonged to a group whos goal was to destroy western democracy, free speech, rule of law for all and such horrid beliefs such as human rights and capitalism. Capitalism although not perfect is the primary difference between western countries and 3rd world countries.

Great comments; they always make interesting reading. Regarding Scheer: Do you think he’s a liberal in a conservative suit? Or; is he strategically pulling his punches–until after the election? Likely wishful thinking. His present lack of gonads does not bode well for us. I’m afraid he will be Trudeau lite. Why couldn’t Maxime Bernier; or Pierre Poilievre be the leader of the conservative party? Why did we get a Milquetoast?? Is it because the conservatives have moved too far to the left?

The Loberal elite are taking down statues of founding fathers only as a virtue signal to hide the fact that they are only paying token attention to native Canadians, or whatever we are supposed to call Canada’s aboriginals! Take a good look at what they’ve done for native peoples, while they still live on reservations with poisoned or no drinking water, high rates of drug & alchol abuse, high rates if suicides (especially native teenagers)! The liberals are too busy giving away billions to foreign entities, buying a pipeline which there was no need to buy, making it impossible for… Read more »
