MP Rachael Harder of Lethbridge, Alberta is the Conservative’s official critic for status of women. Her party leader, Andrew Scheer, appointed her. She is also pro-life.
Now, Prime Minnister Justin Trudeau is a feminist. You know that because he keeps saying so.
So because Trudeau is such a great feminist, he ordered his MPs on the status of women committee to block Harder from becoming its chairman.
So instead they stormed out in a fuss. All because of Harder’s views on abortion.
The Conservatives have said for years that they don’t want to reopen the abortion debate. Harder wasn’t going to propose to regulate abortion, let alone criminalize it. Even if she did, it would get voted down.
But this is how Trudeau runs the Liberal Party:
He has some pro-life Muslims and Sikhs in his caucus. There might even be a secret pro-life Christian, but they’d never admit it in public. Because Trudeau banned them.
Now Trudeau thinks he can take away a Conservative MP's Parliamentary privileges because she’s thinking the wrong thoughts.
I don’t care if you’re pro life or pro choice:
The idea that the prime minister can censor MPs from other parties from representing their own consciences and their constituents is shocking.
