OTTAWA -- Conservative leadership candidate and MP Derek Sloan is accusing the Liberals and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of "effectively putting into law child abuse" in relation to their policies on gender identity and conversion therapy.

In a videoconference webinar he held with supporters on Tuesday night, Sloan took questions from participants on a range of issues, from his position on the drug hydroxychloroquine and gun rights, to his views on abortion, conversion therapy and transgender rights.

When asked about how he would respond to people on the election trail that might call him transphobic or who might accuse him of making life harder for trans people given his past comments, Sloan said that he supports all Canadians, but said he would be doing a disservice to people if he allowed children with gender dysphoria to only have the option to proceed with life changing surgeries.
