Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has sent a letter to Justin Trudeau demanding that the government must allow scrutiny and accountability.

Scheer asked the prime minister to organize another emergency sitting in the House of Commons, which he thinks is "necessary to fix the gaps in your original legislation which were caused by rushing through legislation during the last emergency sitting."

Scheer blamed these gaps on the Trudeau government "circumventing" parliment: "when there is no debate, no discussion ... it makes it that much harder to perfect legislation."

"Now is the time for basic parliamentary oversight and increased transparency measures," added Scheer.

The Trudeau government was previously criticized for attempting to overhaul parliament in its emergency legislation that was introduced a few weeks ago. This, however, was shot down, after opposition parties (excluding the Bloc Quebecois) vented their frustration.

Trudeau's Liberals are governing on a thin majority after their election victory in 2019. As a result of this, it is especially difficult for the government to pass legislation through the House of Commons.

Despite this, Scheer's Conservatives have said they would support Trudeau's emergency legislation, so long as it does not alter the foundations of Canadian democracy such as parliamentary sovereignty.
