Legislators returned to the House of Commons on Monday — some in person, some virtually — as a Parliament Hill protest against government-imposed COVID-19 measures entered its third full day.
During Monday’s session of question period, and the first in Ottawa since the trucker convoy arrived to protest, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the only way to end supply chain issues is for the workforce to be vaccinated against COVID-19, stating that illness could intensify problems.
Trudeau added that the country remains unified as close to 90 per cent of Canadians have already received the jab.
Also, when asked why the Liberal government won’t send lethal weapons to Ukraine to defend their borders against Russia in the event of an invasion, Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly said NATO Sec. Gen. Jens Stoltenberg called Canada one of the “lead countries” in aiding Ukraine amid the rising tensions.
The trucker demonstration brought Ottawa to a near standstill over the weekend and showed no signs of ending as parliamentarians and businesses were left wondering when the usual rhythm of the frazzled national capital would resume.
