Ontario Legislature Prorogues
On October 15, 2012, Ontario Premier McGuinty announced his resignation and as well the Ontario Legislature prorogued. As a result of the prorogation, all outstanding business before the Legislature, including all government and Private Members' Bills, “died” on the Order Paper. All Committee work has also ended.
For more information on the prorogation, and especially its impact on the government’s ongoing compensation restraint initiatives, see our FTR Now dated October 16, 2012, “Premier McGuinty Announces his Resignation and Prorogues the Legislature.”
