Ontarians Say The Ford Government's Extra Long Summer Break Is Super Hypocritical - 2019-06-07
While the province of Ontario is getting ready to enjoy the summer months, it looks like Ford's government will also be partaking in the summer fun by planning an extra long summer holiday for the legislature. Today, the Ontario government has announced that they are planning to adjourn the legislature until after the federal election. The Ford government's extra long summer break means that Ontario MPPs will be taking time off for the summer starting tomorrow, and will not return until October 28th.
While summer breaks for the MPPs are common, usually the legislature rises in early June and returns shortly after Labour Day. However, Ford's government has decided to prolong this break, by adding on an extra month and not returning until late October.
The Government states that since they have been elected in June of 2018, they have achieved many goals and have passed eighteen bills. They state that they have created 170,00 jobs and have watched the province prosper, which is why they have decided to take the time off.
