POLITICS: How one leader and a small party works from within the system.

Good morning,

On Wednesday, February 18, 2015, David Coon, MLA for Fredericton South and Leader of the Green Party will be introducing a bill to the Legislative Assembly entitled, ‘An Act to Return to the Crown Certain Rights Related to Wood Supply and Forest Management.’

You may be interested in coming to the Legislature gallery as a show of support for this bill.

We are recommending you get there for the opening of the session at 10am, allowing for time to get through security. There are procedural items on the Orders of the Day which make it difficult to determine the exact time the bill will be introduced but it will follow Question Period, which should be within the first 60 minutes.

Following the introduction of the bill, there will be a media scrum in the rotunda.

The bill should go to debate (second reading) approximately 4-5 weeks of House sitting following the tabling.
