Conservative Members of Parliament (MP) are ramping up opposition to the Liberals’ controversial pro-abortion summer job grant attestation requirement, with one MP sponsoring a petition against it, and leader Andrew Scheer vowing his party “will fight the Liberal values test every step of the way.”

Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government is facing ongoing backlash against its new rule that employers sign an attestation that their core mandate respects abortion “rights” in order to receive Canada Summer Job grants.

Ontario MP Harold Albrecht has now sponsored an e-petition on the House of Commons website asking the Liberals to drop the attestation. The petition calls upon the government of Canada to “remove this discriminatory requirement and allow Canadians to continue to exercise their freedom of religion and freedom of expression without facing institutionalized discrimination by the Government of Canada.”

The petition has been signed by over 1,250 people since its Tuesday launch, and will remain open until June 6. It can be found here.
