NDP leader discusses deal on COVID bill, offers conditional throne speech support – Sept. 25, 2020



Speaking with reporters in Ottawa, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says his party will offer conditional support for the speech from the throne after reaching an agreement with the Liberals concerning sick-leave provisions in Bill C-2, the proposed legislation to implement three new COVID-19 aid benefits.
