    Tony Wakeham feels this leaves no forum for public accountability for the rest of this week into next week, while crises in the fisheries, health care, housing and affordability grip the province.

    The Leader of the opposition is outraged over government’s decision to close the House of Assembly after just seven sitting days. Tony Wakeham feels this leaves no forum for public accountability for the rest of this week into next week, while crises in the fisheries, health care, housing and affordability grip the province. He says  “For the past seven days, they have been embarrassed by our questions about their negligence in fisheries management, travel nurse contracting, the storage of unclaimed bodies and more,” Wakeham added “Ministers have washed their hands of the responsibility for leadership, and the Premier himself has not even been present for much of the time as he continues to traipse all over the globe.”
