OTTAWA — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer sowed more confusion Thursday about his party's stance on abortion, telling reporters his backbench MPs will be allowed to introduce anti-abortion bills, but he will oppose any such measures.

"These issues will not be reopened by a Conservative government," Scheer declared at a press conference called to address questions about his social conservative views, which have dogged him for the past week.

Scheer blamed the Liberals for trying to focus on divisive issues in an effort to distract from what he called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's "litany of failures," listing his government's tax increase, ethical scandals, and massive deficits.
