Parliamentary debate, committee suspended due to technical issues in Ottawa


Parliamentary proceedings, including discussions at the Commission and the House of Commons, were suspended due to technical issues on Tuesday night.

According to Vice-Chair Christ’Entremont, some MPs couldn’t go online at all, and the House streaming service Parlvu was down.

Some MPs debating Bill C-21, the government’s latest gun control law, chose to stop the debate because some members who were virtually unable to attend were unable to attend. ..

House of Commons and Senate will be postponed until 2:00 pm on Wednesday

A committee investigating the government’s use of emergency law was also unable to meet.

We were planning to hear from Ontario Police Commissioner Thomas Callique and former Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly.

On February 15, the day after the federal government enforced the Emergency Law, Mr. Throry resigned in the face of intense criticism.

At that time, the occupation of downtown streets by protesters demanding the removal of COVID-19 restrictions, and in some cases the Liberal government, lasted for more than two weeks.

Sloly told another parliamentary commission on June 2 that Canadian police and agencies were not ready for the scale of the protest, as well as the organization and financial resources of the protesters.

It is not clear what the suspension of discussions means for government planning. The Spring Sit is due to end this week, but the Liberal Party has signaled that MPs want to pass important legislation, including a law on extreme sickness, before taking summer vacation.
