Ministers scrum on COVID-19 vaccine mandates, legislative priorities, papal visit – June 14, 2022

June 15, 2022 at 11:44 am  Federal, Politics



Ministers speak briefly with reporters on Parliament Hill as the federal Liberal party holds its weekly caucus meeting. Omar Alghabra (transport) and David Lametti (justice) face questions about federal COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The federal government recently suspended a number of vaccine mandates pertaining to travellers and federal public service workers, but existing border measures affecting inbound international travellers to Canada remain in place. Mark Holland (government House leader) and Pablo Rodriguez (Canadian heritage) are asked about the government’s legislative priorities as the spring sitting winds down, and on Governor General Mary Simon’s expenses during her recent visit to the Middle East. Minister Marc Miller (Crown-Indigenous relations) comments on Pope Francis’ health problems and how they may impact the pontiff’s scheduled visit to Canada. MP Kody Blois, chair of the House of Commons agriculture committee, discusses the committee’s study on the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine and global food security.
