The federal Liberal Party is "weaving the mythology" that if elected, a Conservative government would introduce legislation on abortion, according to one strategist.

"They're not aren't talking about the facts but something hypothetical," said Alise Mills, Conservative strategist and a senior associate at Sussex Strategy Group.

"It's intended to provoke fear, and I think at a time where Canadians are feeling not united ... I think, you know, this dog-whistle politics is dangerous."

On the second day of campaigning Thursday, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer paid a visit to a daycare in the riding of York Centre in Toronto, where Rachel Willson is running as a Conservative candidate.
