Fall Legislative Assembly Session Cancelled in British Columbia
The provincial government cancelled the fall 2016 legislative session on the day it was scheduled to begin. Another session is not intended until February ahead of the May 9, 2017, general election.
The Official Opposition is calling for the Legislature to meet in October to introduce the 2017 provincial budget and to address funding to remedy the current housing crisis and loopholes in the province’s rent control laws.
This is the third time in five years the fall session has been cancelled.
