Saskatchewan Lawmakers Recess Because of Coronavirus Pandemic
The Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan was adjourned at the end of its sitting on March 18 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
A motion by Government House Leader Jeremy Harrison to recess the session, which was agreed to by all the lawmakers, leaves open the return date.
Specifically, the legislature will be recalled by the speaker upon the request of the government, which will determine the appropriate date for members to resume their session.
When the Assembly reconvenes, the rules of the parliamentary calendar will still apply and the completion day for the Fourth Session of the Twenty-Eighth Legislature will be set.
