The Conservatives and NDP took aim at the Liberals Wednesday in question period after a CTV News report revealed the government’s attempts to quash a class action lawsuit alleging sexual misconduct and discrimination within the Canadian Armed Forces.
The federal government argued in court filings that it does not "owe a private law duty of care to individual members within the CAF to provide a safe and harassment-free work environment, or to create policies to prevent sexual harassment or sexual assault."
Veteran Amy Graham, one of the lead plaintiffs in the case, told CTV News that the Liberal government’s attempts to stop the lawsuit was contradictory to Trudeau’s public support for victims of sexual misconduct.
