MP voting against Emergencies Act
Kootenay-Columbia MP Rob Morrison is joining with fellow Conservative Party members in voting against the invoking of the Emergencies Act in the House of Commons today.
“Protests against COVID-19 mandates on Wellington Street in Ottawa continue to be peaceful and police already maintain the ability to enforce the law against illegal activity and blockades.
“There was a path forward to deal with the situation through peaceful resolution and I was shocked that both the Liberals and NDP voted against it and are now looking for more restrictions and power,” Morrison stated Feb. 16.
“The needed off-ramp is simple and Conservatives will continue to call on the government to put forward a plan to remove the vaccine passport and remove the requirements at border crossings so that Canadians can start moving forward.
“(Prime Minister) Justin Trudeau and (NDP leader) Jagmeet Singh continue to work against the overwhelming majority of Canadians calling for a restoration of freedoms and an end to federal mandates. The Prime Minister is choosing to further wedge, divide and stigmatize Canadians instead of working to unify the country,” Morrison said, adding he will be voting against the Prime Minister’s “overreaction” today.
Morrison also provided the Prime Minister’s contact information for constituents wishing to send him a message: E-mail: [email protected] or phone: 613-992-4211.
