OTTAWA — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says party members endorsed his positive message on immigration during the leadership campaign, suggesting former leadership rival Kellie Leitch is offside with a recent comment about Syrian refugees.
Last week, Leitch tweeted a link to a column about a Syrian refugee charged with beating his wife with a hockey stick.
“A battered wife and a bloodied hockey stick. That’s the legacy of Trudeau’s Syrian refugee program,” she wrote.
