Liberals Refuse to Provide Safe Reopening Plan

Steinbach, MB – Ted Falk, Member of Parliament for Provencher, issued the following statement after the Liberals voted against providing a data-driven roadmap to safely ease COVID-19 restrictions:

“One year after COVID-19 first arrived in Canada, Canadians deserve more than an unending cycle of restrictions. The only way to give Canadians the certainty they deserve is to present a clear, data-driven plan to support a gradual, safe, and permanent lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.

“Conservatives presented a motion calling on the Liberal government to provide, within 20 days, a plan that would outline a clear path forward. This is consistent with our allies in the United States and the United Kingdom who have both released public plans for economic reopening.

“The Liberals rejected this basic request, continuing to leave Canadians without a plan for the future.

“COVID-19 restrictions have caused a great deal of strain to Canadian families and businesses and have dramatically impacted Canadians’ mental health. This must change.

“I will continue to stand with my Conservative colleagues and members from any party to demand an evidence-based plan to move forward.”
