Leitch Tweeted: Air Sunday and Syrian Refugee

leitch tweeted: A battered wife and a bloodied hockey stick, according to CTV. That's the legacy of Trudeau's Syrian refugee program, she wrote. Last week, Leitch tweeted a link to a column about a Syrian refugee charged with beating his wife with a hockey stick. Scheer has avoided answering specific questions about the tweet, referring reporters last week to Leitch and questioning whether she believed what she had tweeted. The Conservative party under my leadership will continue to be an inclusive, welcoming party that welcomes not only immigrants, but also refugees, and ensures that Canada plays its role in welcoming people from difficult situations, Scheer said in an interview to air Sunday on CTV. For example, we led the fight to get the Liberals to do more to welcome the Yazidis, one of the most persecuted groups at the hands of ISIS... And everyone in my caucus will project those same views and those same values. In an interview with Evan Solomon, host of CTV's Question Period, Scheer wouldn't say whether he spoke to Leitch directly about what she had written on the social networking site.
