What Erin O’Toole says vs. What Erin O’Toole means

Exposing the truth about another two-faced Conservative. 

February 02, 2021

Erin O’Toole will say anything to get elected. Even a former Conservative candidate said O’Toole’s rhetoric is “like speaking out of both sides of your mouth.” 

We’re breaking down what he says versus what he really means. Help inform others by sharing this information. 

What he says: 

He will fight for you and your family. 

What he means: 

When families desperately needed help during this pandemic, Erin O’Toole pushed the government to give more money to big business, and less to working Canadians. He even said the government “screwed up” emergency relief benefits and got it “entirely wrong” by helping people in need. In other words, O’Toole thinks it was wrong to trust families with the emergency money they needed to get through the pandemic. 

What he says: 

He won’t cut health care. 

What he means: 

The Conservatives always make campaign promises to maintain health care funding. But the last time they were in power, with a majority government, the Conservatives (including their new leader, Erin O’Toole) ruthlessly cut $36 billion from provincial health care transfers. Just recently, Erin O’Toole praised the Conservative premier of Alberta’s plan to slash health care and lay off up to 11,000 health care workers in the middle of a pandemic. Erin O’Toole and the Conservatives would cut our health care at the worst possible time. 

What he says: 

He’s trying extra hard these days to sound like a moderate, pro-worker, regular kind of guy. 

What he means: 

Erin O’Toole voted for unfair trade deals that cost thousands of good manufacturing jobs — then he lied to defend them. Today, he attacks China — but the record shows he backed a secretive Chinese investment deal that trampled on our rights. He even proposed a law allowing corporations to raid workers’ pensions and voted to make it harder to refuse dangerous work. Especially right now, workers need more protections — not less.
