Isabelle Morin takes a leave of absence

The NDP MP for Notre-Dame-de-Grace-Lachine is taking a leave after being diagnosed with Bell’s palsy.

Bell’s palsy is characterized by a partial paralysis of the muscles of the face. It requires medical treatment and complete rest for several weeks. Morin thanks her constituents in advance for their understanding and support. The MP’s office will remain open and the processing of files will continue in her absence.
