Ottawa, ON – The Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, issued the following statement calling on Canadians in Vancouver – South to fire the Minister of National Defence, the Hon. Harjit Sajjan, in the next election:
“Harjit Sajjan misled Canadians about the nature of his service. He presided over the Vice-Admiral Mark Norman scandal. And, he covered up sexual misconduct allegations. This is not the record of a Minister, or a Member of Parliament, who can be trusted to implement the changes necessary to eliminate sexual misconduct in the military or represent the important issues of Vancouver – South in Parliament.
“Justin Trudeau won’t fire Harjit Sajjan, and Harjit Sajjan won’t resign. If you care about ending sexual misconduct in the Canadian Armed Forces, and ending the cover-up by the Trudeau government, you have to take matters into your own hands and fire Harjit Sajjan. It is up to you, the voters of Vancouver – South to help put an end to the scandals, corruption, and culture of cover-ups that have taken root in Liberal Ottawa.
“The women of the Canadian Armed Forces can’t afford more of the same. There is only one choice to end the corruption in Ottawa, and that is Canada’s Conservatives.”
