Throne Speech

NDP House Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, St. John’s East–Quidi Vidi) delivered the NDP Caucus’s response to government’s Speech from the Throne today in the House of Assembly.


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

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

I find it very interesting that the Premier today is talking about a review of government departments in order to find savings. That was not in the Speech from the Throne yesterday.


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.
