Parliament Must Meet

Justin Trudeau has made it clear that he would like to permanently replace Parliament with press conferences. He wants an audience, not an Opposition and this is absolutely unacceptable. Let me be clear, this isn’t a partisan issue. This is about whether or not a democratic country like Canada should have a functional Parliament and frankly, right now with 1 in-person sitting day that lasts about two hours and 2 virtual sitting days that each last a couple of hours each a week we do not have a functional Parliament. Without regular sittings of Parliament, there is no regular oversight of the Liberal government. It’s no wonder they don’t want to come back. Moreover they are supported by the other opposition parties. I am ready to go back to work in Ottawa in a safe and responsible manner! Canada’s Conservatives are the only party who are pressing for a return to Parliament with regular working hours but with a reduced number of MPs for safety. If members of the Bloc or the NDP, or the Liberal back bench don’t believe that Parliament is an essential service, they should answer as to why they ran for office in the first place. Conservatives strongly believe in the role of Parliament. It is vital and it must be fully restored. Hundreds of thousands of Canadians are hurting right now and they need our help. They need Members of Parliament to return to Ottawa to fight for them.
