The fall session of Prince Edward Island’s legislature ended yesterday, marking the shortest House sitting in the province’s history. Provincial politicians spent just six days in the legislature and debated issues for only five of those days. But after coming under scrutiny from the media and the public, the recently re-elected Premier Robert Ghiz was unapologetic about the short session. And why? “He said this is common after elections, pointing to Newfoundland, where newly elected Premier Kathy Dunderdale chose to opt out of a fall legislature session entirely,” reports the Guardian. Good to see our province is setting such a good precedent for our provincial counterparts.
