MPs vote to continue hybrid sessions of Parliament until next year

A majority of Members of Parliament voted to continue hybrid sessions in the House of Commons until June 2023.

The motion tabled by the leader of the Government House was approved with the support of members of the NDP and the Greens by a count of 177-144.

Hybrid sessions allow parliamentarians to attend and participate in debates virtually while in Canada.

Conservatives argued against continuing the practice, which was put in place for the COVID-19 pandemic, saying other Canadians have returned to the workplace and Parliament should be no different.

Liberals say it is important to allow MPs the flexibility to take part in House proceedings even if they are ill or unable to attend in person.
