Erin O’Toole is still not pro-choice…

The abortion issue is still the “stinking albatross” around the neck of the CPC leader, because about 81% of CPC incumbents running in the federal election have been designated as anti-choice* by the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada. That includes party leader Erin O’Toole.
“We don’t believe Erin O’Toole is pro-choice,” said Tasia Alexopoulos, spokesperson for ARCC. “In 2016, he voted in favour of private member Bill C-225 that would have given legal personhood to fetuses.
Erin O'Toole courted anti-choice groups during his leadership campaign and owes his victory to them.
Erin O'Toole promised to allow his MPs to introduce private member bills against abortion and would guarantee a free vote, even by his Cabinet – which means such bills could pass in a Conservative majority government.
If elected, O’Toole would also cancel foreign aid funding for safe abortion care and advocacy.”
Arthur said that it’s obvious O’Toole “has no interest” in the abortion issue because he’s never reached out to the reproductive rights movement to discuss how to improve access.
“O’Toole is just mouthing meaningless pro-choice platitudes so he can convince the public to vote for him. It’s cynical political manipulation.
O'Toole's personal views on abortion are irrelevant, whatever they are. He’s shown a complete lack of integrity on this issue and cannot be trusted.”

Doug Ford gave an Order of Ontario to Mike Harris...

Harris reduced the public role in long-term care, relaxing regulations and lessening public oversight. Under the Harris the growing corporate business of caring for seniors flourished & we all know how that worked out!
