Erin O’Toole has announced that his Conservative caucus has agreed to accept new rules requiring all parliamentarians be vaccinated.
But the Conservative leader will challenge how the decision came about saying only the House of Commons itself can determine the conduct, not the Board of Internal economy.
O’Toole was coy when asked if his caucus is fully vaccinated, saying only that every caucus member who attends the House in person will be vaccinated.
“We had a great discussion today, the Conservative caucus is united, I put forward a plan and we support that plan which is returning to a normal parliament and making sure that MP’s and Senators that come to debate the issues of the day in Parliament are vaccinated,” said O’Toole after the caucus meeting.
He also repeated that he’s not in favour of a virtual parliament.
