    Barry Petten says he doesn’t know how or why the Premier decided to close the house after only seven sitting days and says he’s had enough of the disrespect.

    The Progressive Conservatives are upset that a number of bills, at least 13, that are still outstanding while they should have been dealt with the in house sittings. Opposition House Leader Barry Petten says he doesn’t know how or why the Premier decided to close the house after only seven sitting days and says he’s had enough of the disrespect. Petten had hoped to talk about the Crown Lands Act in the House of Assembly, which is a huge issue for rural areas and the issue didn’t get a second reading. Furthermore, he says when the budget comes down next week the house will be closed for three weeks for easter.
