Andrew Scheer has decided his 2019 path to victory relies on demonizing asylum seekers fleeing Trump. Scheer and his team have pushed a non-stop narrative that there is a Canadian border crisis.

But Conservatives cannot help themselves as they continue to lie, fomenting outrage to support their own political ambitions.

Columnist Andrew Coyne took to Twitter to succinctly explain the “border crisis”, and explain why Conservatives are nothing more than hypocrites on this issue:

Add your name if you support an open, welcoming Canada

And oppose Conservative attacks on refugees fleeing Trump
