Former prime minister Kim Campbell says the problem with Andrew Scheer's views on social issues like abortion and same-sex marriage isn't that he has the stance he does, but that Canadians don't trust him to prevent the matters from being raised at a federal level.

In the time since the election, the Conservative Party leader told The Canadian Press that he believes a prime minister could have views like his — that of opposing abortion and, at least at one point, being opposed to same-sex marriage.

Campbell (who was the last prime minister of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, which merged with Stephen Harper's similarly right-wing Canadian Alliance to become the modern day Conservative Party of Canada) said she thinks Scheer's views are besides the point, which is that he failed to convince Canadians that a government led by him wouldn't raise what she thinks are settled issues in Canada.
