It’s Back to Business at Queen’s Park

The Christmas recess has wrapped up at Queen’s Park, the legislature is back in session and there are more than a few pots at a rolling boil on the front burner.

The labour standoff continues with all of the teachers’ unions across the province. Rotating strikes continue and there appears to be no progress in this war of attrition.

That strife will take up a good deal of oxygen as the session resumes but Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney will be front and centre presenting some major public transit legislation and having to stick handle the botched roll out of the province’s new licence plates.
