Back in March, Public Eye was the first to report rumours that the Campbell administration was giving thought to shortening or even perhaps even axing the upcoming fall legislative session. And, today, The Province's Ian Bailey quoted provincial Liberal House Leader Mike de Jong as saying, "There is unlikely to be a full fall session." And there may not be one at all if the special committee to appoint a representative for children and youth doesn't have a candidate for the legislature to approve. Meanwhile, The Tyee's Will McMartin is calling on MLAs to "relinquish half of their current salaries" if there isn't a fall session.
