Trudeau Prorogues Parliament

August 19, 2020

Good afternoon,

During the height of the pandemic as other democratic nations found ways to keep their legislatures in operation, Justin Trudeau shamefully shut down Parliament to try and avoid accountability.

As you know, the Governor General has now granted Trudeau’s request to prorogue Parliament in a desperate attempt to hit the reset button. At a time when Canadians are looking for stability and leadership, Justin Trudeau has given them corruption, chaos, and cover-ups.

Prorogation of Parliament means all work in the House of Commons; including committees that were charged with investigating the WE scandal, developing new measures to fight COVID-19, or hearing from small businesses impacted by the pandemic, has been terminated effective immediately.

The Liberal Government has until September 23rd when they must present their plan for Canadians through the Throne Speech. If the Liberal Government does not gain enough support from opposition parties for their new plan, an election could be triggered by a vote of non-confidence. Until then, the Liberals have left Canadians in a quagmire of uncertainty facing over a trillion dollars of debt this year with a now ex-Finance Minister who jumped ship and a Prime Minister plagued in scandal. Hiding out for one month won’t solve the Liberals’ ethical problems. As long as Justin Trudeau is Prime Minister, the corruption will continue.

Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon has pressing issues related to fisheries, forestry, infrastructure and public safety to name a few. You deserve representation. I was elected to be your voice; Justin Trudeau is taking that away.

My office continues to work on your behalf to ensure our communities are empowered to come out the other side of this pandemic healthy and strong. I want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this extremely challenging time. When Parliament resumes, our Conservative Caucus will have a new leader at the helm and as her majesty’s Official Opposition we will be ready to take the Government to task.

In service to you,


Brad Vis
Member of Parliament
