Side-by-Side Candidate Comparison in the Riding of Saskatoon - University

Rating Comments

Mr. Willerton gave perfect answers to CLC's 2019 federal election questionnaire. He ran previously in Alberta as an Independent candidate in the provincial riding of Airdrie. At that time, a source on community news, Discover Airdrie, stated that Willerton was in favour of a provincial referendum on capital punishment and the funding of abortion.

He was a provincial MLA who wanted to jump into federal politics. He could have sought the nomination in several ridings other than this one, so as to challenge a pro-abortion NDP incumbent MP in the 2019 federal election. Instead however, he chose to challenge Brad Trost, the heroic pro-life/family MP who brought credibility to, and newfound respect for, the socially-conservative base of the Conservative Party. Trost did that by running for the CPC Leadership on an explicitly pro-life platform.

Tochor was successful in his coup, narrowly defeating Trost in the nomination vote.

This was a potentially telling move given CLC's belief that there were progressive, red tory forces within the party establishment who wanted to oust Trost for being too outspoken against abortion, and for promoting the true definition of marriage. Also revealing was the reason Tochor gave the media for why he felt Trost deserved to be removed from office as a member of parliament. He said it was because Trost "is a polarizing figure". Many people understood "polarizing" to be a code word for always bringing up pro-life issues and defending traditional family values. If this was indeed what Tochor was getting at, it does not bode well for him being any sort of advocate for social conservative issues.

More evidence of Tochor's social liberalism is the fact that while he was an MLA in the Saskatoon-Eastview riding, he paid for an advertisement to personally endorse the local homosexual pride parade.

Gave mostly good answers to CLC’s 2019 election questionnaire, but holds the belief that preborn babies can be killed if they were conceived in rape. That is not a fully pro-life answer as it denies the human rights of the child, punishing him or her for the circumstaces of their conception, even though the child is guilty of no crime.

Official NDP policy is pro-abortion. All NDP candidates must sign papers accepting the party position in favour of killing children in-utero and in favour of taxpayer funding of abortion.
