With the political demise of Erin O’Toole, the flip-flopping, authoritarian Conservative Party Leader, there is a renewed sense of hope among Conservative Party members about who might replace him. For the first time in a long time, Conservatives are genuinely excited.
At the moment, MP Pierre Poilievre is the perceived front-runner in the upcoming Leadership contest to replace the pro-abortion O’Toole, and the only one who has officially jumped into the race.
Campaign Life Coalition has been receiving a steady stream of inquiries from our pro-life supporters about Poilievre, the MP for Carleton. Hopeful excitement is expressed by many, especially in light of his recent support for the freedom truckers and their demand to end all mandates related to the abortion-tainted COVID injections.
“Can we get behind Poilievre?”
“Where does he stand on life issues?”, they ask.
There’s no doubt that on financial matters, Poilievre is a skilled eviscerator of Liberals. In Question Period, he has made Justin Trudeau and his Finance Minister look like fools on economic questions. On that basis, he’d make a good Finance Minister in a Conservative government.
However, we cannot endorse him for Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) because Poilievre is pro-abortion.
