Scheer says Bernier’s ‘personal ambition’ behind quitting Tories

CAPTION: Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says he believes Maxime Bernier’s plan to start a new party shows the MP thinks he is “more important” than the Tories.

The Conservatives kicked off their policy convention on Thursday in Halifax.

(Aug.

23, 2018) 1.

SOUNDBITE: Andrew Scheer, Conservative leader PLACELINE: Halifax CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: Maxime Bernier declared open war on his own party Thursday as the outspoken and controversial Conservative MP abruptly quit the Tory caucus, announced plans for a new political movement and derided his former leader and colleagues as ``intellectually and morally corrupt.'' With Conservative caucus members gathering in Halifax for a policy convention that was expected to bring the Bernier boil to a head, the Beauce MP instead stayed behind, summoning journalists to a snap news conference that proved breathtaking in its defiance.

``I am no longer a Conservative,'' he declared after reading a scathing diatribe against his party and its leader, Andrew Scheer _ the Saskatchewan MP who narrowly edged Bernier out of the leadership job last year in a loss some have suggested he never got over.

``I am now convinced that what we will get if Andrew Scheer becomes prime minister is just a more moderate version of the disastrous Trudeau government,'' he said.
