Doug Shipley, Member of Parliament for Barrie – Springwater – Oro-Medonte, issued the following statement today:
“Today Parliament will vote on a Conservative Opposition Motion calling on the Trudeau government to table a plan for the lifting of all federal mandates and restrictions, and to table that plan by February 28, 2022.
I will be voting in favour of this motion.
Throughout this pandemic, my Conservative colleagues and I have repeatedly called on the Trudeau government to follow the evidence and follow the science.
I have repeatedly stated that we must learn to live with and manage COVID-19, while also getting people back to work and rebuilding our economy. Even Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam has said all existing public health policies need to be "re-examined" in the coming weeks.
It is time to end the divisiveness, end the politicization of this pandemic, and provide a plan to end all mandates.”
