NDP Leader Lorraine Michael was ready to speak for her full 15 minutes in what she admitted was an imperfect setting. Instead of the full week of debate on the Muskrat Falls project, the premier introduced a private member’s motion, limiting debate on the biggest expenditure in the province’s history to a maximum of two hours.

 

MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Leader of the Third Party.

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