The House of Commons will rise today, which may be the last time before the expected fall elections-party leaders are already testing their views of voters.
Conservative Party leader Erin O’Toole described today’s Liberal Party as tax and spending elitists, who did not perform well in responding to the pandemic. The leader of the New Democratic Party, Jagmeet Singh, said that the prime minister has not done enough to strengthen social programs to help the most vulnerable.
In turn, the Liberal Party stated that the opposition is blocking “progressive” legislation designed to support a pandemic-torn economy, protect LGBTQ children, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and support the Canadian arts and entertainment industry.
In a speech to his caucus on Wednesday, O’Toole raised the specter of a coalition government if voters returned to the minority parliament.
‘Four different shades of red’
O’Toole said that only by supporting the Conservative Party with an overwhelming majority of votes can the Liberal government supported by the Quebec Group, Green and New Democratic Party members be brought to an end, and they largely support its agenda.
O’Toole said that 12 years ago, these parties signed an agreement to manage Canada as a coalition-this refers to former Liberal Party leader Stephen Dion (Stéphane Dion) and his New Democrat opponent Jack Lay Jack Layton negotiated a failed agreement. Now, he says, the left-leaning parties have unanimously passed a bill to “spend other people’s money” at this session of the parliament and have pushed federal debt to jaw-dropping levels.
He said that the progressive parties in the parliament are not obvious, but “four different reds.”
“They are all the same, they are all part of the problem,” O’Toole said, adding that voters have left an “optical illusion” among parties committed to “overspending.”
“Canadians don’t have five choices-only two,” he added. “On the one hand, it is the Conservative Party of Canada, and on the other is the Liberal Party-New Democracy Party-Green Group Alliance.”
O’Toole also claimed to be an ardent defender of Canadian institutions and opposed “radicalist voices.” He said these voices “destroyed” the country by canceling Canada’s National Day celebrations and dismantling statues of past leaders.
“When people want to cancel Canada Day, I can’t remain silent. I am very proud that I am Canadian, and I know most people do the same,” he said.
“We are not a perfect country. No country is. No place on this planet has a history that can stand scrutiny. But there is a difference between admitting our shortcomings and always destroying this country.”
Singh refuted O’Toole’s claim that his party is a branch of the Liberal Party, saying that the New Democracy Party wants reforms far more ambitious than the reforms proposed by the ruling party so far.
Singh said that at this parliamentary meeting, the Liberal Party ignored the appeals of his party and demanded the implementation of a universal health care plan, increased taxes on the “super rich”, and forced long-term care homes to operate on a non-profit basis.
Liberals and conservatives are on the side of the “super rich”-Singh
Singh said that the Liberal Party has also formed an alliance with the Conservative Party and passed legislation for the returning to work of the striking Port Montreal workers-something his party strongly opposed.
He said that the New Democratic Party will further and faster launch more social projects.
“The New Democratic Party is on the side of the people, and the Liberal Party and the Conservative Party are on the side of the super rich and the super rich. They hurt people,” Singh said.

Although Singh said he was ready to participate in elections at any time, he was not in a hurry to participate in election campaigns while the country was still fighting the pandemic. He said that holding a general election earlier would “endanger all the work we have done so far.”
Singh said: “It doesn’t make sense to do this when we are in the midst of a pandemic and we have not done it yet.”
The Liberal Party uses conversion therapy to vote against the Conservative Party
A sign that the party intends to portray the Conservative Party as a sign of backwardness and anachronism on social issues before the possible fall vote. Liberal MPs have jumped to the Conservative Party that voted against the C-6 Bill-legislation prohibiting so-called “conversion” Treatment of LGBTQ people”.
On Tuesday, more than half of the Conservative Party’s caucus vetoed the legislation. Some social conservative members in the caucus expressed their concern that this would criminalize conversations between teenagers and religious leaders and therapists.
The Liberal Party insists that any practice aimed at forcibly “converting” LGBTQ people into heterosexuality is barbaric and must be prohibited.
“More than half of Conservative MPs voted against a bill that criminalizes conversion therapy-it is a harmful, abusive and untrustworthy practice, not a therapy,” Ontario Liberal MP Adam Van Coverden voted. Said in a tweet.
“If any of these congressmen want LGBTQ2+ people to be proud of happiness or claim to be allies, please speak out for their hypocrisy.”
Liberal Party leader Pablo Rodriguez also condemned the Conservative Party for delaying other government legislation, such as the broadcast law reform in the C-10 and C-12 bills, the Net Zero Emissions Act.
He said that the Conservative Party is doing everything it can to “block” and “block” the government’s “progressive” agenda.
These bills are various stages of the legislative process, and the government has expressed its hope that the Senate will pass them before the entire parliament rises sometime next week.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also criticized the opposition’s treatment of Public Health Agency Director Iain Stewart (Iain Stewart).
Stewart was summoned to the House of Commons on Monday for admonishment because his agency failed to hand over unedited documents related to the mysterious dismissal of two scientists working at the Winnipeg National Microbiology Laboratory in Canada.
The Liberal Party believes that it is unfair to publicly scold the people behind the agency that led Canada’s fight against COVID-19.
Trudeau said: “We have seen a certain degree of obstruction and toxicity in the house, which is really worrying.”
Singh rejected the Liberal Party’s claims that the parliament was dysfunctional, toxic, or plagued by obstruction strategies. He said that the Liberal Party created a crisis to justify the triggering of the election.
