ONTARIO LEGISLATURE SITS FOR FIRST TIME UNDER NEW PC GOVERNMENT
7/11/2018 2:51:33 PM
The Ontario legislature has resumed for a rare summer session following the election of Premier Doug Ford and the Progressive Conservatives to a majority government last month.
The first order of business was the election of a speaker -- and Wellington-Halton Hills Progressive Conservative MPP Ted Arnott won on the first ballot.
Ford has taken a seat at Queen's Park for the first time after being elected as a rookie MPP.
Elgin-Middlesex-London MPP Jeff Yurek also took his seat for the first time as the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry.
The PC government will outline its priorities in a throne speech to be delivered Thursday by Lieutenant-Governor Elizabeth Dowdeswell.
