The Standing Orders have to be amended to allow MPs to vote remotely, and according to Bloc deputy House leader Christine Normandin, there’s agreement among parties for those changes to be made temporary.
The day before the Throne Speech, the party leadership teams had yet to reach unanimous agreement on how the House will operate this fall.
