NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) says she is hopeful today’s Throne Speech indicates the Dunderdale Conservatives finally plan to pay attention to some issues she has been highlighting for years. At the same time, however, she says there remain some gaping holes in government policy.
