OTTAWA – Liberal MPs have penned a letter to Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer imploring him to cancel a Greater Toronto Area candidate's $250-a-ticket fundraising event billed as a discussion of "the business of healthcare."

The Liberals say they're concerned about the framing of the event, but also say it's "quite clearly an attempt to sell access to power," in the letter obtained by CTV News.

The event, scheduled in North York, Ont. next week, includes the tagline: "healthcare reimagined, it's time for change." Based on the wording of the event website it appears geared towards people who work in the health-care field.
