Conservatives Call for Weekend Debate on COVID-19 Bill

Conservative MPs Gérard Deltell (House leader), Tim Uppal (caucus liaison) and Eric Duncan (the party’s question period coordinator) speak with reporters on Parliament Hill about their party’s proposal for the House of Commons to sit over the weekend in order to debate the government’s legislation (C-2) to implement new COVID-19 aid benefits. The Conservative motion was later denied unanimous consent in the House. (September 25, 2020) (no interpretation)
