CARAQUET, N.B. — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he has “issues” with the Progressive Conservative government of New Brunswick.

Trudeau lashed out at New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs today, along with other unnamed conservative leaders, during a news conference in Caraquet, N.B.

The prime minister criticized Higgs’s calls to remove the federal price on carbon and the premier’s changes to the province’s policy on gender identity in schools.

Trudeau says Higgs and other conservatives around the country are trying to score political points off transgender and nonbinary children, who are “incredibly vulnerable.”

But the prime minister saved his harshest critique for the provincial government’s decision not to fund abortions outside hospitals, calling it “a disgrace.”

Higgs’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
