Mandatory attendance just one negative of minority
In the Sept. 20 question period, John Horgan quote to Andrew Wilkinson: “I can appreciate the confusion in the member’s mind, because I’ve been here every day, which never happened until we came over to this side of the house.”
Shows that B.C.’s new premier is in a learning curve. Of course, he has not missed a day in the legislature, because he is premier of a minority government. If he missed a day, then the Liberals would have 41 MLAs seated to the NDP’s 40 MLAs seated. The same reason why next week, the legislature is not sitting because of the B.C. Municipality Convention. NDP government cabinet ministers will give speeches during the convention and if the legislature was sitting, there would not be enough NDP MLAs seated in the legislature.
Just one of the negatives in a minority government.
