Newly added, from Sen. Don Plett's office: "Sen Plett took part in the discussion and the agreement amongst Senate Leaders." Does he know how many CPC Senators are fully vaccinated? "We have no further comments."

In minority Parliaments whips play a key role, ensuring that enough MPs are in their seats for debates and votes. They also play a role in committee and office assignments, and will be on BOIE. #cdnpoli

UPDATED: CPC Leader Erin O'Toole says that his caucus has agreed to 'respect and abide by' the new rules mandating vaccination in the House of Commons, but at the 'earliest opportunity' his party will be challenging the policy decided by a board of MPs.

Important clarity: O'Toole today both in-person and in his statement said that the rules they take issue with "require Parliamentarians attending in the House of Commons and Senate to be vaccinated." Senate sets its own policy. Right now that does not include a vaccine mandate.

Lots of Qs to CPC MPs on way into their caucus meeting about House mandatory vax policy & O'Toole's position. Some telling reporters it'll be discussed today & saying while they don't want to publicly disclose their vax status, answer will be clear if we see them in the Chamber.

Cabinet has arrived as the human backdrop for PMJT’s press conference. The PM will take 20 minutes of questions, then the ministers will take questions after.
