As Victoria's legislature-watchers rediscover things like fresh air, sunshine, and not worrying who's prowling around the office at night, it's time to look back at the session that was.
NOTE: This episode was taped just before the craziness of the Thursday’s brouhaha over Speaker Darryl Plecas’ conduct.
It’s been a long, long, looooong legislative session in Victoria, as the NDP-Green coalition push through major changes to everything from healthcare to labour codes. The session wrapped up May 31st, and all three BC political parties can claim both victories and losses in the sessions.
The Orca’s Editor-in-Chief Maclean Kay was there for all of it. He joined Rick via Skype from the Legislature to recap the session.
