Debating the Conservative Motion | May 19, 2022

Today, the House will debate our motion,

Given that:

a. Canadians are currently experiencing unacceptable wait times at Canadian airports,

b. Current restrictions have been cited by experts as ineffective and contributing to additional delays, costs, and confusion, as well as acute labour shortages,

c. Canada’s international allies have moved to lift COVID-19 restrictions at airports and other points of entry,

d. Canada is losing business and economic opportunities.

The House call on the government to immediately revert to pre-pandemic rules and service levels for travel.

Health experts around the world have given other countries the green light to open up their airports for travel. Why is the science in Canada different than that of our international allies? In fact, we still do not know what science the Liberal mandates are based on because the government refuses to release its data and decision-making tools.

Let’s see if the NDP will support us on this.
