The pleasure principle

Earlier, we reported there wouldn't be a question period during today's sitting of the provincial legislature. The reason: the legislature's standing orders make no provisions for such an opportunity on Saturday, Sunday or Monday. Asked whether the Campbell administration had called a weekend sitting to avoid question period, Government House Leader Mike de Jong quipped, "I don't know. I recall the last week of question period. I rather enjoyed it" - a reference to the New Democrat's poor performance during November's one week legislative sitting. "You should have a look at the tape."
