Conservatives Accuse Liberals Of Seeking To ‘Engineer’ Pandemic Election
Federal Conservatives are accusing the Liberals of seeking to “engineer” an election by blaming the Official Opposition for delays in the government’s legislative agenda.Conservative House Leader Gérard Deltell charged in a statement Monday that Liberals are “playing games” at a time when the focus should be on the COVID-19 pandemic.“Canadians don’t want a risky pandemic election, but with every filibuster, delay in producing House-ordered documents, and the poorly organized legislative calendar, it’s becoming more and more clear that the Liberals are trying to engineer one,” he said.Liberals have for weeks “deliberately confused constructive debate” with political delay, Deltell  said. He accused the government of having made mistakes in the past by seeking to “rush” legislation through the House of Commons without proper scrutiny, pointing to a loophole in the government’s Canada Recovery Sickness Benefitthat allowed quarantining vacationers to access the $1,000 benefit. Ottawa pledged to close the loophole in January.Watch: Trudeau, in January, says pandemic a bigger priority than election Deltell said Tory MPs are doing their jobs and that it is the Liberals who are faltering.“They failed to manage the legislative agenda, call bills in no logical order, schedule insufficient time for debate on their legislation, and then make public statements accusing Conservatives of playing games,” he said.Deltell was firing back against Government House Leader Pablo Rodriguez, who told The Canadian Press late last month the Tories were blocking the government’s agenda, including a bill to enact billions in spending from the fall economic statement and proposed legislation to introduce new measures to safely conduct a national election during the health crisis.“It’s delay, delay, delay and eventually that delay becomes obstruction,” Rodriguez said. As an example of the alleged “games played by Conservatives,” Rodriguez noted a three-hour debate in the House last month on a three-sentence committee report on the Canadian Tourism Commission president.HuffPost Canada has asked the Government House leader’s office for comment on Deltell’s accusations.Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland also urged the Tories — both in an open letter to Tory Leader Erin O’Toole last month and in the House — to speed up the passage of Bill C-14, which seeks to authorize new pandemic-related aid, including targeted support for hard-hit industries. “Mr. O’Toole, this is delay for the sake of delay — at the expense of the country,” Freeland wrote at the time.O’Toole responded that “modest debate” over the bill was appropriate and said it was up to Liberals to manage their legislative calendar and prioritize proposed legislation.Liberals have also accused the Tories of obstructing their assisted-dying legislation, Bill C-7, by refusing to hold evening sittings in the House on the matter. Deltell said in his statement that his party wants the minority Parliament to work so Canadians aren’t forced to the polls again. “To that end, we call on the Liberal government to put aside their political games so we can focus on helping Canadians,” he said.Though there has been speculation about a possible spring election for months, both Liberals and Conservatives maintain they don’t want to send Canadians back to the polls. O’Toole has said several times the pandemic must be behind Canadians before another election is called.Conservatives are currently running TV ads that introduce O’Toole to Canadians, six months after winning his party’s leadership race.
