Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole on COVID-19 recovery, sex-selective abortion bill – April 12, 2021
Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole holds a news conference on Parliament Hill, where he discusses Canada’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. He also faces questions on Conservative MP Cathay Wagantall’s private member’s bill on sex-selective abortion. O’Toole says he will vote against the bill, but declines to say if he will direct his shadow cabinet to do so as well. If adopted, the bill will prohibit a medical practitioner from performing an abortion if the reason is based on the gender of the fetus.
