“We feel there’s a lot at stake in the next election,” said Leah Taylor Roy, chair of the Liberals’ women’s caucus. “Some [Conservative] members support positions that we think would threaten fundamental women’s rights.”
The next federal election will have extremely high stakes for Canadian women, according to the chair of the Liberal women’s caucus.
Ontario Liberal MP Leah Taylor Roy said the next time Canadians go to the polls, people will be forced to choose between the current administration, which Taylor Roy said is always there for women and families, and a Pierre Poilievre-led Conservative Party, which she said remains divided on key issues like abortion.
“We feel there’s a lot at stake in the next election with the particular type of conservative ideology that is there, not only with the leader, but within certain members of his party,” Taylor Roy told iPolitics. “Some [Conservative] members support positions that we think would threaten fundamental women’s rights. Those aren’t wedge issues. Those are human rights issues.”
