Trudeau says Scheer ‘disqualified himself’ from leaders discussion on blockades with ‘unacceptable speech’

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Tuesday he met earlier with NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, Bloc Quebecois Leader Yves-Francois Blanchet and former Green Party Leader Elizabeth May to discuss the ongoing nationwide rail blockades and solidarity protests with the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs. Asked why Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer was not there, Trudeau said he had “disqualified himself” with an “unacceptable” speech earlier in the House of Commons in which he called Trudeau’s own address “word salad.”
