‘Didn’t feel right’ to staff committee meetings, Senators say, citing ‘grim’ Ontario COVID cases for two-week cancellation
Senators cancelled all but one ‘non-essential’ committee from meeting between April 21 until at least May 4, when the Senate next sits.
Senate leaders, on the advice of the Speaker, agreed to pause virtual committee meetings for two weeks amid a spike in Ontario’s COVID-19 case counts.
