O’Toole says he lobbied for ‘full vetting’ of anyone being considered for Chief of Defence Staff

“The West Block” host Mercedes Stephenson interviews Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole about the ongoing controversy of sexual misconduct that has engulfed the Canadian Armed Forces and whether the former Conservative government had thoroughly vetted former chief of the defence staff, Gen. Jonathan Vance, before his appointment. “I said we have to make sure that there is a full vetting so that there are no allegations, no improprieties against someone that’s going to be heading the Forces,” says O’Toole. Mercedes also asks the Conservative leader about internal divisions ahead of the party’s convention later this week.
