Sask. MP removed from House of Commons over vaccination status

A Saskatchewan MP was removed from the House of Commons after breaking COVID-19 regulations.

Yorkton-Melville MP Cathay Wagantall sat in the House this week despite not providing her proof of vaccination.

The Board of Internal Economy, which sets administrative rules for Parliament, set a requirement that all individuals in the House of Commons precinct must provide proof that they are fully vaccinated.

Wagantall has been driving from her riding to Ottawa as she can’t board a plane or train due to the federal government’s vaccination rules.

“This is ridiculous. Ontario is open. My province has been open for a long time.”

Wagantall did not share her vaccination status.
