Erin O’Toole has fumbled the push for Canada’s 988 suicide hotline
The 988 campaign was always intended, at least by me, to be a victim-led, and victim-centred initiative, but the new Conservative Party leader turned it into a political football.
Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole is pictured arriving for a caucus meeting in Ottawa on Nov. 18. Kathleen Finlay writes that her involvement with 988 would be hard to miss, but she’s never heard from O’Toole, or anyone in his office. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
