No House this fall

Congratulations on NewfoundlandLabrador's new government: from populist to smug, fat, arrogant and lazy in record time.

It seems this government sees no need to open the House of Assembly 16 months after the House last closed.

Thank you Mr. Rideout for demonstrating that this administration considers democratic principles inconvenient and that transparency, openness and accountability are mere slogans to be trotted out during elections and then put away again once the majority has been banked.

It's nice to see at one party leader has a problem with this. I wish they all did.

It's going to be a long four years.
