Canadians are outraged that she tried to use the horrific tragedy to score political points against Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives.
Recently, I reported on this disgusting Tweet from Catherine McKenna:
“I spoke to parents at Ottawa Main Mosque today whose kids are too scared to pray & go to school. In Canada. Meanwhile Andrew Scheer has to be called out before he can call out Islamophobia. We all need to stand together against racism, hatred & violence of all kinds. All of us.”

It was an absolutely disgusting move by McKenna, as she’s trying to use the aftermath of a tragedy to score political points.
And she’s facing a big backlash for the comments, as you can see in how people responded to her online:
Vile partisan posturing.

Lovely how you immediately politicise it to critique your opponents.
Never let a tragedy go to waste!

Yup. Time for YOU to step down.

What about those of us who don't understand why Andrew Scheer has to be "called out"? We should also "stand together" with a Liberal politician turning a tragedy into a campaign ad?

I'm going to be honest with you. Not the right time.

Fear mongering, Politicians do it best.

You’re part of the problem. All people need to be able to relate to one another. Haven’t you noticed the more you push the more there is a problem.

Terrible – even for @cathmckenna.

Why don’t you go and talk to Christian children in Syrian Churches, they are probably afraid to worship too. Why do you have to politicize a tragedy, you are disgusting, why not focus on violence by all, not just what fits the fashionable Liberal agenda of the day.

This is terrible politicizing

Holy shit, does it ever stop with you? Stop trying to politicize this stuff. Your absolutely ridiculous. I can’t wait to see you and Trudeau voted out. Want to talk climate change? Ask why Trudeau flew to and fro same day. 1346L of fuel per hour……

Using a moment like this for political advantage. Hope you feel good about yourself

Sentence 2 is not leadership, not even close – do better…raise the bar
— Flemming Rasmussen (@fgrazz) March 17, 2019
No. Please delete and retweet without the middle paragraph. It ruins the sentiment of "standing together" of the last paragraph as it causes division.
If you want to point out Scheer needing 15h to get it right (like I have myself), do it in a separate tweet.

Have you apologized yet?

Minister you can do better… using a senseless tragedy to score political points😒

I honestly cannot believe how corrosive your government is.

I stand together with people of all races, religions and political leanings to condemn anyone using death to garner political advantage.

That’s just a sample of how Canadians are responding, as McKenna’s comment continues to elicit outrage and cause more anger and division.
We are seeing clear as day that the Trudeau Liberals intend to divide Canadians and tear the country apart in order to try and win the next election, and all Canadians must stand against their divisive and dangerous tactics.
