Andrew Scheer's Quebec lieutenant acknowledged Monday that he has publicly misrepresented the Conservative leader's policy on abortion.

Alain Rayes, the MP for Richmond–Arthabaska tasked with recruitment, has been informing candidates and telling the media that the abortion issue is dead and that MPs will be prevented from reopening it — information that Scheer's office suggested was news to them and a policy that caught social conservative groups working to elect Conservative "pro-life" candidates by surprise.

With Rayes at her side, freshly minted Tory candidate and Olympic medallist Sylvie Fréchette told the Montreal radio program, "Tout un matin", Monday that it was "false" that Conservative backbench MPs would be able to reopen the abortion issue. "That's totally false," the Rivière-du-Nord contender said.
