Federal leaders get personal on campaign

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says while he is personally pro-life, his party wouldn't re-open the abortion debate if elected. Scheer made his views on abortion explicit a day after other leaders pushed him to clarify his stance on the issue at a French-language debate. Meanwhile, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May said she is losing patience with Jagmeet Singh and accused the NDP leader of making false claims about her party. Singh talked about how comments about race can hurt a day after a man approached him in Montreal and suggested he cut off his turban to seem more Canadian. And Justin Trudeau said a re-elected Liberal government would expand Canadians' eligibility for medically assisted dying. (The Canadian Press)
