The look of shock and despair on Erin O'Toole's face said it all. And who can blame him?
A few days ago Justin Trudeau announced that his government would put pressure on New Brunswick to pay for abortion services at a private clinic in Fredericton.
As the Canada Health Act says they should do.
But when O'Toole was asked whether he would do the same, his answer was no.
Which put him squarely on the side of those who would deny women easy or easier access to abortion.
Federal Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole says he would leave it up to the New Brunswick government to decide how to provide and fund abortion services if he becomes prime minister.
During a stop in Fredericton on Friday, O'Toole said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's repeated promises to force the province to pay for the service at Clinic 554 amount to politicizing the issue "for his own political gain and to divide Canadians."And made him look like a person who would not respect the Canada Health Act, and the latest member of the Con Coat Hanger Club.

The smelly old misogynists will scream, try to destroy Justin Trudeau, and try to turn the clock back to a darker time.
But slowly but surely they are dying out.
And the future belongs to us...
