    Remembering nannies for the opposition. leader. Give me a break.

  2. I′m conflicted on this. Certainly as leader, the difference in cost to send his children to school in Regina versus in Ottawa should be offset. On the other hand, should it have been disclosed? But then if it was above board, do you disclose every single thing? In comparison to the PM, how is it any different than Trudeau having nannies? And Trudeau′s trip to the Bahamas was _not_ above board, and in clear conflict of interest. I′m not sure there′s really anything to be upset about − it′s just another MSM pile onto the conservatives.

  3. His use of funds are totally legal.
    It is not however, moral. Use your own funds to put your kids in Priv School.

    I voted for Scheer; I gave him the benefit of the doubt when he lost; I defended him.
    But not anymore.

  4. Best thing for everyone is to just act like nothing happened and move on (in my best sarcastic voice)

  5. Please put your loved ones in private schools. Love them give to them

  6. If you care about your education private school is the way!! Wake up.

  7. Public school is hell.

    The approved agreement to cover the education cost of the children was just one of the knives held in abeyance by Conservative Big wigs to pull out at such a time as this to stab Mr Scheer in the back and force him out. (You to Brutus?!)

    Cons should not have stolen the Leadership from Max! He deserves to lose and resign! PPC

  10. Raitt couldn’t be more backhanded. Loved it.

  11. Comparing his party topping up school funds to SNC! Are you freaking serious?

    • Its the same thing. Both had no laws broken, but ethically it looks bad. Justin can say he was trying to help jobs, Andy can only say he was helping his rich kids….

    • @Racerprose You must be a Liberal to equate obstruction of justice to the party spending money it’s own money as it sees fit.

  12. Watch out insurance companies, an unlicensed insurance broker will apply for job in Regina!

  13. Apparently Harper signs off on these expenses as director of the fund. Nuff said

  14. Michelle Remple step up and be the leader that Canada needs so desperately. Your time is now Michelle!

  15. And the CPC was asking for a donation before the election. Had l given, l would be livid today. As it stands, l’m thankful it may have been the straw that broke the back. I’m glad he’s gone. Maybe now there’s a chance to sink Trudeau next election.

  16. It is not about his kids schooling. No cocky grin today.

  17. They are ALL thieves

  18. Quit with the justifications

  19. Cowardly thieves

  20. Michelle Rempel for Leader !
