‘Worst Time O’Toole’ campaign exposes Conservative record

A new campaign is exposing the disastrous track record of new Conservative leader Erin O’Toole and the Conservative Party on health care and labour issues.

“As Canadians face a possible early federal election this year, it’s important to know the facts about Erin O’Toole,” said Unifor National President Jerry Dias. “O’Toole presents himself as a fresh alternative who wants to change the political system to benefit working Canadians, but in truth he’s a Harper-era Minister with a history of supporting cuts to heath care.”

The ‘Worst Time O’Toole’ campaign features a series of videos broadcast on national television and social media channels sponsored by Protecting Canada, a new organization working to protect Canadians from the threat of Conservative cuts to health care and public services.

The hard-hitting ads illustrate the devastating result that health care cuts would have on patients, stressing that Canadians can’t afford Erin O’Toole and that he is the wrong leader at the worst possible time.

As health care workers struggle to provide COVID care, the consequences of reckless actions by Conservative Premiers across the country are worsening under the pressures of the pandemic.

In Alberta, Premier Jason Kenney is laying off thousands of health care workers. In Ontario, Premier Doug Ford laid off health care workers and cut health research funding. In Manitoba, Premier Brian Pallister fired nurses and closed Emergency Rooms. All with the tacit approval of Erin O’Toole.

“We can’t risk electing a federal government that would cut health care, not in a pandemic, not ever,” said Dias.
