New legislation

Tomorrow 2 new pieces of legislation will be introduced in the legislature –

one introduced by Minister Hancock (Minister of Human Services) entitled "Continuation of Essential Services In The Event of an Illegal Strike".

The second will be introduced by Minister Horner (President of the Treasury Board and Minister of Finance), entitled "Public Sector Compensation Restraint Act".

We do not know what they will say, although we are not expecting them to be positive.

Earlier today, Minister Horner announced "Second quarter results show that the province saw an operational surplus of more than $1 billion in the first six months of the fiscal year."

He also stated "By holding the line on public sector wages and living within our means, we’re ensuring we have the resources available to rebuild from the flood and keep investing in our families and communities."

Stay tuned and be prepared to contact your MLA.
