With the special rules the House of Commons is operating under, the government needs unanimous opposition support to debate bills. Conservative House leader Candice Bergen said her party wants the government to bring back parliament if it wants to move legislation. “Trudeau chose to shut down Parliament, so it is up to him to figure out how he is going to pass bills, in a minority government, when he has basically thrown Parliament away,” she said. Bergen said there are parts of the legislation the Conservatives could potentially support, but said her party would not give the Liberals any special latitude to move the bill forward.
