O’TOO LE, BLANCHET EXPECTED BA CK IN PARLIAMENT

- Brian Platt, National Post

The return of Parliament last week came with the bizarre scenario of the leaders of the two largest opposition parties both in isolation due to COVID-19 infections. However, they are each expected to be back in time to deliver their reply to the throne speech on Wednesday. Conservati­ve leader Erin O’toole has been isolating at his Ottawa residence since he tested positive nearly two weeks ago, but his office says his last day of isolation is Tuesday as that marks 14 days since the onset of his symptoms. O’toole tried to get tested Sept. 16, but was turned away due to long lines in Ottawa and wasn’t tested until the following day through a private service. Bloc Québécois leader Yves- François Blanchet finished his last day of isolation over the weekend.
