Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer now says Tory MP Derek Sloan was wrong to question the "loyalty" of Canada's top doctor, but won't say if the backbencher will face any repercussions for doing so.

At a press conference in Ottawa Monday, the Tory leader was again pressed about Sloan's remarks about Dr. Theresa Tam, which other Conservative MPs have called inappropriate and racist.

In an email to supporters and online video released last week, calling for Tam to be fired as Canada's chief public health officer, Sloan asked if she works "for Canada or China." Tam, who has been in the role since 2017, was born in Hong Kong.
