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.

Meghan Markle Opens Up About Her Dad's 'Betrayal'
Meghan Markle’s two-hour interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday night was so jam-packed with information that some of the big reveals had to wait until Monday morning.In a clip that didn’t make Sunday’s broadcast, Meghan spoke publicly about her difficult relationship with her father for the first time. “There was such an obsession about anything in my world, including tracking down my parents,” Meghan told Oprah. “And I did everything I could to protect both of them in that media frenzy. But for over a year, the UK tabloids were trying to find my dad, offering people so much money to try to find his address.”Once they did, they descended on him gleefully, she said. “I remember being told there was a huge headline like, ‘We found him’ or ‘We’ve got him.’ You’re talking about someone’s father. And from that point, the tabloids, they moved into the apartment next door and across from him. [They] descended on this small town ... giving him gifts. The whole thing brings us to where we are today.” "'I just need you to tell me. And if you tell me the truth, we can help.' And he wasn't able to do that." — Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, on a conversation she had with her father regarding tabloids #OprahMeghanHarrypic.twitter.com/XhPwGM0Uvl— CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) March 8, 2021In 2018, just before Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry, paparazzi photos circulated of her dad, Thomas Markle, reading books about England. It seemed very sweet, until it was revealed that he actually staged the photos himself, and was receiving money from the same tabloid press that was causing his daughter so much distress.He did not attend the wedding, and Meghan’s father-in-law Prince Charles walked her down the aisle instead.“Did it feel like betrayal when you found out your father was workingwith the tabloids?” Oprah asked.“Um, I’m just trying to decide if I’m comfortable even talking about that,” Meghan replied.She explained to him that she could go to “the institution” — that is, the Royal Family — and ask them to kill the story. But that would mean using up a favour, which they wouldn’t be able to use in the future, if they needed to protect their kids.Her father told her that he wasn’t working with the tabloids, she said.“So, he basically lied to you,” Oprah said.“When I said we won’t be able to protect our own kids one day I said, ‘I just need you to tell me. And if you tell me the truth, we can help,’” Meghan said. “And he wasn’t able to do that. And that for me has really resonated, especially now as a mother.”“I look at Archie. I think about this child, and I genuinely can’t imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain to my child. I can’t imagine it,” she said. “So it’s hard for me to reconcile that.”She knows it would be hard to be the target of that tabloid pressure, she said. But her dad made a choice.“Everyone has accountability,” Meghan said. “Look, they hunted my mom down.”“Right, and she didn’t speak to the tabloids,” Oprah said.“You’ve never heard her say a word,” Meghan said. “She’s remained in silent dignity for four years watching me go through this.”You can watch the full clip on CBS’ website.RELATEDThe Most Shocking Moments From Harry And Meghan's Interview With OprahHere's When Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Knew They Had To Leave CanadaMeghan Gives Oprah An 'Honest Answer' About Why Archie Doesn't Have A Title
