Ontario MPP stripped of role for misrepresenting vaccination status
One of Premier Doug Ford’s caucus members has been stripped of her parliamentary assistant role for misrepresenting her COVID-19 vaccination status.
In a PC statement today, it was announced that Lindsey Park will no longer serve as parliamentary assistant to the attorney general.
It was stated that Park “misrepresented” her vaccination status.
Ford has said that all members of his Progressive Conservative caucus must be vaccinated, and he removed longtime Chatham-Kent-Leamington representative Rick Nicholls for refusing to get vaccinated.
However, Park will remain in caucus because she has provided a medical exemption.
Park, who represents Durham, is Ford’s second caucus member with a medical exemption, along with Scarborough Centre representative Christina Mitas.
