MP Terry Sheehan sworn in for a third time on Parliament Hill surrounded by family and supporters
Terry Sheehan was sworn in Saturday, November 6, on Parliament Hill surrounded by family and supporters. This year, due to COVID-19, the number of people that were able to attend in person were limited.
Terry remarked that it was an honour to be sworn in for a third time.
MP Sheehan said, “I am deeply honoured each time that I have had the opportunity to swear my 100 percent allegiance to my country and to all the wonderful people that I represent in the House of Commons. I promise to continue to be Sault Ste. Marie’s voice in Ottawa and not Ottawa’s voice in the Sault.”
This third consecutive swearing in by the same Liberal MP represents a new record for the riding of Sault Ste. Marie since its creation in the 60s.
MPs must be sworn in before they can sit in the House of Commons when Parliament will return on November 22, 2021.
With the reconvening of Parliament, the Government of Canada will also deliver a new Throne Speech, which will lay out the government’s progressive plan to finish the fight against COVID-19 and build a better future for everyone.
