**Ottawa, ON** – The Honourable Candice Bergen, Conservative Opposition House Leader and Alain Rayes, Quebec Political Lieutenant, released the following statement after the Liberals voted against a Conservative motion to put Tori Stafford’s killer back behind bars: “Today, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals failed the Stafford family and failed to stand up for victims by using their majority to defeat a Conservative motion calling on her killer to be moved back behind bars. “This vote was a betrayal of justice. “Justin Trudeau had an opportunity to do what is right. Instead, he chose to hide behind bureaucracy and make excuses for this injustice. Not a single Liberal had the courage to stand up for Tori and her family. Every Liberal MP in the House followed Trudeau’s lead and voted to keep McClintic in a fenceless healing lodge living alongside children. “Conservatives will continue to fight for victims of crime and hold Liberals to account for coddling criminals.” -30- **For more information:** Office of Candice Bergen, MP – [email protected] – 613-995-9501 Office of Alain Rayes, MP – [email protected] – 613-995-1554
