Legislature opens

MLAs were back in their seats in the legislature yesterday as the spring sitting opened. But for how long is the question?

Government House leader Michel Samson would only say the government wants to pass its amended Accessibility Act. The budget is due tomorrow and many think Premier McNeil will call the election soon after that and run on the budget even without passing it.

Opposition leader Jamie Baillie says the legislative process is being rushed to meet McNeil’s election agenda.
