The vaccine mandate in the House of Commons will expire on Monday, June 20 — the same day as the federal mandates for domestic and international travel, as well as civil personnel.
On Thursday, Mark Holland, Trudeau’s house leader, proposed a resolution to end the mandate on the House of Commons precinct. The motion was unanimously approved.
Since November 2021, everybody seeking entrance to the House of Commons precinct, including elected Members of Parliament, has been required to show proof of vaccination against Covid-19.
The Speaker’s decision was overturned because the ruling minority Liberals, with the assistance of the NDP, had passed a hybrid parliament motion a week before that included a vaccine requirement for people seeking entrance to the precinct.
