Conservative MP David Sweet joins choir calling for an end to COVID-19 restrictions
A Tory MP has joined the chorus of voices calling for an end to COVID-19 lockdowns.
Ontario MP David Sweet says pandemic restrictions are causing serious psychological and economic damage.
He says public health measures should focus on vulnerable communities, not healthy individuals.
Sweet, who represents Flamborough-Glanbrook, took part in non-essential trips earlier this year and was later removed as chair of a House of Commons committee. He is not seeking re-election.
He is not the only Tory MP to have expressed frustration with the current level of COVID-19 restrictions. Several have also spoken out against the new hotel quarantine and testing regime for inbound travelers to Canada.
