National Post- Liberals propose another year of hybrid Parliament
The Liberals are looking to keep Parliament by Zoom call in place for another year, with a motion to extend the hybrid House of Commons to be introduced this week.
Liberal House leader Mark Holland announced the government’s plan Monday morning, as the House of Commons enters its final week before breaking for the summer.
He said the hybrid Parliament, where MPs can appear in person or via videoconference, made Parliament work during the pandemic and it might be important to keep around. As an example, he said five MPs, including the prime minister, had COVID-19 in just the past week and otherwise would not have been able to participate in debates and votes.
