Want to Understand Scheer's Stance on Rights of Women, LGBTQ People? Look to the Harper Era - 2019-09-27
Andrew Scheer's views on abortion and same-sex marriage have come under considerable scrutiny as the country heads towards October's federal election.
Given his inconsistent messaging on the former and his open opposition to the latter, some have expressed concern about whether Scheer would re-open debate on both issues in the House of Commons should he be elected prime minister.
Others have dismissed this concern on the grounds that the Conservative leader will likely follow in the footsteps of former prime minister Stephen Harper and refuse to do so.
