Who is lying, Stephen Harper or Dean Del Mastro?

Harper has ducked and weaved around the abortion question as much as possible, much to the dismay of the theocratic wing of his party. He killed Ken Epp's anti-abortion by stealth private members bill, and said specifically that he would not support a bill to re-open the debate on abortion. Of course, as Harper has to accept that he is stuck with a thin minority or worse, that has to be taken with a grain of salt. It seems though, that Dean Del Mastro, Conservative MP for Peterbourgh, and a point man for the In and Out scandal, disagrees:

Between 1:15 and 1:20 is where we see what the Conservatives would do with a majority government, and why they cannot even be given the chance with another minority.

"The laws will change in this country, I believe that, God Bless you all"

So who is lying, Dean Del Mastro, or Stephen Harper? What is the true Conservative position on issues like abortion, equal marriage, and other social issues that they are radically out of touch with the Canadian mainstream on?
