After failing to gain traction from the “lurking Stephen Harper” and “scary social conservative” tropes, the Liberals are now accusing Erin O’Toole of planning to privatize healthcare based on a video clip so deceptively edited even Twitter has labelled it “manipulated media.” True North’s Andrew Lawton says this is a sign of a Liberal campaign lacking a clear and coherent message, or even any message at all.
Also, Conservative leader Erin O’Toole is facing criticism after backtracking on his pledge to protect conscience rights for healthcare practitioners. Dr. Shawn Whatley joins the show to explain why conscience rights matter.
