Today was our first day of the 98th winter session. We had the honour of being joined in the house by Anne Thompson who was our first ever female Premier, although today she was graciously performing the role of clerk. This is notable this year in particular, as this year’s board of directors/executive is comprised solely of women for the first time in YPM’s 98 year history.
In our first question period, the Minister of Finance, Alexa, was bombarded with a multitude of well thought out questions regarding her bill, the Healthcare Expansion Act.
Later in the evening, the registrar general, Marissa, guided the backbenchers through the process of crafting a bill. Members are now hard at work on private members bills exploring a variety of topics. We are so excited to see what they have written!
