Conservative MP Pat Davidson says it would be wrong to suggest proroguing Parliament means MPs will be on holiday. Conservative MP Gary Schellenberger says the proroguing of Parliament means he can take some time off to enjoy the Olympics.
Mr. Schellenberger admitted he may try to take two or three weeks off during the Winter Olympic Games and may try to get to Vancouver if he can find accommodation.
The Olympics in Canada were another good reason to prorogue Parliament, he added. “If we are sitting, how do MPs get to those events,” he said of the Olympic games. “It makes sense that we are not sitting.”
