Standing up for Religious Freedom
As Prime Minister, Andrew Scheer would reopen Canada's Office of Religious Freedom, and make protection of religious and ethnic minorities around the world a key foreign policy priority.
Canada has to defend it's values on the world stage, not simply go along to get along. We have a government that is putting international human rights on the back burner in order to curry favour with dictators. That must end. Conservatives believe in leading with our values.
Religious freedom isn't just an issue in our foreign policy, it's also an issue here in Canada. During the euthanasia debate in Parliament, I fought for better conscience protection for doctors and nurses. We cannot lead with our values internationally if we do not respect them at home
