Scheer Blasts Liberals For Sharing Video Targeting Anti-Abortion Candidate - 2019-09-12
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says Liberals are desperately trying to "change the channel" on their own controversies by releasing a video Thursday of a Toronto Tory candidate calling for laws to restrict abortion.
The edited clip, which Liberals say is from an anti-abortion event in Ottawa in 2017, features York Centre candidate Rachel Willson calling for "pro-life legislation." In the video, Willson also calls for a "national monument to the unborn in Canada."
Veteran Liberal MP and minister Carolyn Bennett shared the clip ahead of Scheer's campaign event with Willson in North York. Bennett suggested Scheer's decision to appear alongside Willson flies in the face of his claim the abortion debate won't be revisited if the Tories form government.
