OTTAWA -- Former interim leader of the federal Conservative Party Rona Ambrose is accusing her former caucus colleagues of blocking her private member's bill requiring sexual assault education for would-be judges to ensure that another bill about Indigenous rights does not pass.

In a tweet on Wednesday Ambrose said she was told the Conservatives will "block" her Bill C-337 to make sure that another private member's bill requiring Canadian laws be in harmony with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples "never passes."

After Ambrose decried a "group of old boys" in Senate for delaying her bill, it was dealt with at committee in the Senate, and amendments were made that she welcomed.
