'A huge trickle-up effect from the States': Steinbach march attendees say Canada should reopen abortion debate - 2019-06-01
Organizers confirmed to CBC News that Ted Falk, the Conservative member of Parliament for Provencher, and provincial Education Minister Kelvin Goertzen, who represents the Steinbach area in the legislature, both attended the event.
Both have attended the event in previous years. Falk also came under fire last year when he yelled "It's not a right!" in response to a statement from the prime minister about the right of women to have an abortion.
Tony Plett, a father of three who says he's a card-carrying member of the federal Conservative Party, said he was disappointed with leader Andrew Scheer, who has said he won't reopen the abortion debate if his party wins this fall's election.
