Nikki Ashton isn’t the first and only elected member of the government to split the country during this pandemic. Many others have left the country, but none have used the excuse of an ailing family member.

The NDP Leader still hasn’t tweeted anything about this, but a statement had been released where it outlines the reasons why Niki would lose her roll as shadow critic.

In the statement that was shared on Twitter by CTV Producer Mackenzie Grey, the NDP proclaimed that the MP had left the country without notifying the party whip or leader.

The statement also went on to say that Canadians expect their elected representatives to lead by example.
