Now that Dalton has resigned as Premier, under whose authority is the proroguing of the Legislature going to be maintained? Should Dalton not say in power to maintain the authority of the prorogation ?
Likewise, the Premier spoke of the negotiations with the public sector being the reason for the prorogation, but with the Premier out of the picture who has the authority to make a deal with the public sector unions? And who can finalize the deal after it is done? Like the imposed deal on the teacher, the legislation will have to go to the Legislature; which is locked out. Now, I don’t think that either party will feel disposed to support and finalize this legislation when the Legislature is again unlocked. So the progation doesn’t make any logical sense.
But shutting down the Legislature to put the kibosh on both the Ornge and the Natural Gas Inquiries, that make sense.
