SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MS MICHAEL: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker.

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) is wondering why the provincial government is ignoring the Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour’s recommended appointment to the Labour Relations Board.

This service in that wonderful, beautiful church was a moving reminder of how closely our history in this city is entwined with the powerful and complex ocean around us.

 

MR. SPEAKER: The Leader of the Third Party.

MS MICHAEL: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker.
