Andrew Scheer’s rally in Langley, B.C. was supposed to start at 6 pm, but still there is no telltale ripple of something happening.
A woman of about 70 approaches a man adjusting the sound equipment and demands, “Are you with Scheer?” Clearly just a contractor hired for the event, he hedges, unsure what she wants. She points at her watch and barks, “It’s a quarter after. I have no respect for anyone who’s late,” and then stares at the sound guy like she expects him to produce the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada from his back pocket now that he’s been told what’s what. He offers an apologetic “Lady, what do you want from me?” shrug and slinks off.
