The provincial legislature will reconvene this weekend to consider legislation that would allow Vancouver to borrow the money it needs to complete the controversial Olympic village project. But just because the legislature is sitting, doesn't mean the New Democrats will have much of an opportunity to hold government to account. The legislature's standing orders state there will be a question period "at the opening of each afternoon sitting on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday." But there's no provision for a question period on Saturday or Sunday.
