Ontario PCs Asked To Stop Giving Themselves So Many Standing Ovations - 2018-11-14
Ontario's Progressive Conservatives could only hold back for about two minutes before giving Premier Doug Ford his first standing ovation Wednesday. The gesture came just moments after the MPPs were told to keep the theatrics to a minimum. Speaker of the House Ted Arnott told MPPs that he's received complaints about the number of standing ovations in the House since Ford's government took power. In past question periods, PC MPPs have given their colleagues as many as 22 standing ovations in the roughly 45-minute sessions.
PCs gave themselves ~22~ standing ovations in question period today. My personal fave was for Minister Michael Tibollo, who got a standing O for mentioning his demotion #onpoli — emma 🦋 (@emmapaling) November 12, 2018
