Four Quebec Liberal MPs admit to international travel during pandemic, violating public health recommendations
One after another, four Liberal Members of Parliament from Quebec ridings admitted to violating public health recommendations by travelling internationally during the COVID-19 pandemic on Sunday. Sameer Zuberi, Patricia Lattanzio and Alexandra Mendes all took to their Twitter accounts to describe their voyages out of the country while Lyne Bessette followed with a statement sent to media. Zuberi, who represents the Pierrefonds-Dollard riding, said on Twitter that he travelled to the United States in December to visit his wife’s sick grandfather. “I recognize that travel during this period, when so many are limiting interactions with loved ones, was an error in judgement. I apologize to my constituents for the disappointment I may have caused,” he wrote.
