Yesterday, CKNW's Sean Leslie quoted provincial Liberal House Leader Mike de Jong as saying the last legislative session before the provincial election will come to an end today. "By the end of tomorrow, the bulk of the legislation has passed, I'm happy about that, a couple of lengthy pieces left that I don't see us getting through with only in only a day or two, so MLA's want to get home, they want to engage with their constituents and get on with the campaign," stated Mr. de Jong. And it seems at least one New Democrat legislator may agree, despite the fact the opposition has had some recent success in question period when asking the Liberals about their former campaign co-chair Patrick Kinsella. In a twitter message posted earlier this morning, transportation critic Maurine Karagianis writes she's "getting her wish to get out on the campaign trail. Last day of the session!"
