In an interview with Bloomberg News on April 20, Justin Trudeau falsely accused the Conservative Party of running on a “headscarf ban” and “snitch lines” against Muslims in 2015.
Trudeau said, “... in 2015, we made, I made a conscious choice to try to draw people together, to work on a laying fears rather than highlighting them and exacerbating them, but I was up against a government that ran on, you know, snitch lines against Muslims and headscarf bans and a fearful narrative that Canadians chose to reject for the large part, because there was a positive inclusive solutions based on alternative on offer and I think that which worked in Canada can and should work elsewhere.”
Headscarves or hijabs, were never a part of the 2015 election. The discussion about niqabs – a full face covering – during citizenship ceremonies, however, was.

As for the “snitch lines” against Muslims. Trudeau is probably thinking of “barbaric cultural practices” such as female genital mutilation. Hardly a “snitch line”. Justin's terminology is actually quite concerning as “snitching” is the act of reporting an illegal act. How exactly is that a bad thing?
This is coming from the man who tried to humanize terrorists by calling them Canadians and opposed revoking their citizenship.
