Break starts early at Queen’s Park

Summer break started a day early at the Ontario legislature this week, much to the dismay of opposition parties.

The Liberals adjourned the legislature Wednesday, prompting claims from Progressive Conservative House Leader John Yakabuski that the governing party didn’t want to face a final question period before the fall election.

NDP House Leader, MPP Peter Kormos, levelled a similar accusation, claiming the Liberals were afraid to defend themselves for another day.

The legislature won’t resume until after the Oct. 6 provincial election.

The early end of this session meant a private members bill to make carbon monoxide detectors mandatory in all homes has died.
