Ontario's MPPs are scheduled to sit at Queen's Park on Thursday for the last time this year before the Legislature adjourns for its two-month winter break.

The truncated sitting lasted just six weeks, as Premier Doug Ford's government extended the summer break until late October. That allowed Ford and his Progressive Conservatives to avoid the spotlight of question period during the federal election campaign.

After adjourning Thursday afternoon, the Legislature is not scheduled to resume until Feb. 18. However, MPPs do not go on holiday, as they work in their constituencies, and cabinet ministers' jobs don't stop just because Queen's Park is not in session.
