Two other federal lawmakers, this time from the Conservatives, are abroad on vacation, we learned on Monday.
Ontario MP David Sweet and Senate opposition leader Dan Platt have failed to comply with a public health recommendation to avoid unnecessary travel.

Sweet told his whip’s office that he needed to make the necessary travel for the “property issue,” the office of Conservative leader Erin O’Toole said Monday afternoon.
“However, the MP decided to stay in the United States for a pleasure trip without informing the Sweet Whip,” Mr O’Toole called on all his Caucus members to “refrain from going abroad.”
Elected Ontario therefore resigned from his role as Chairman of the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics (ETHI).
