Lindsey Park, one of Premier Doug Ford's caucus members, has been stripped of her parliamentary assistant role for misrepresenting her COVID-19 vaccination status.

Park is an MPP representing Durham, ON.

She is staying in caucus though, with a medical exemption, and Government House Leader Paul Calandra says while he had been under the impression until recently that she was vaccinated, she remains an ``important member of the team.''

"It wasn't communicated in the proper fashion to us, and as a result she has lost her position as a parliamentary assistant."

Calandra says the government was under the impression that Park planned to get immunized when she instead sought a medical exemption.
