Mr Morrison said he won’t allow people to “cancel” the Liberal candidate for the Sydney seat of Warringah, Katherine Deves.
“What I won’t allow… is for those who are seeking to cancel Katherine simply because she has a different view to them on the issue of women and girls in sport,” he said.
“I’m not going to indulge that because, you know, in this country, I think Australians are getting pretty fed-up with having to walk on eggshells every day because they may or may not say something one day that’s going to upset someone.
“Now you shouldn’t seek to upset anyone else, you shouldn’t seek to upset people, you should deal with things in a very sensitive way.
“But in this country, I think it’s time to allow people, where they have made mistakes in the past, about how they have said things in the past, where they’re prepared to put those behind them and focus sensitively on the issues they’re seeking to promote, then that’s how they do it.
“Others might want to cancel her, others might want to cancel other Australians for standing up for things that they believe in but I’m not going to have a partnership with them.”
