In a post on Twitter later, Cheryl Gallant rallied behind her boss. I am proud to campaign on Canada’s Recovery Plan, in its entirety, she wrote.

Earlier in the day, even though he had been hounded by journalists at a press briefing in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, Mr. O’Toole did not directly condemn the remarks made by the Conservative candidate on the social networks.

The candidate, who is seeking re-election in the Ontario riding of Renfrew — Nipissing — Pembroke, said Justin Trudeau and radical liberals plan to set up a climate containment.

In a video posted on YouTube on June 18, the candidate accuses the Liberals of talking aboutclimate emergency rather than climate change in order to justify a possible climate containment.

According to this conspiracy theory, the Liberal Party would try to make advance a socialist agenda by imposing significant restrictions in the name of the fight against climate change, Gallant explained in her video.

We are tired of restrictions and lockdowns, and that’s why in the early days of this campaign, I presented my plan for Canada’s recovery, to get the country back on track and have less restrictions and less containment in the future, replied Mr. O’Toole.

Is it acceptable or not for a candidate to share conspiratorial words? The Tory leader has repeatedly avoided responding, preferring to repeat that he was campaigning for the recovery of Canada.

By afternoon, the video in question was no longer on Ms. Gallant’s account. In fact, his channel no longer had video content.
