Press Gallery of New Brunswick President on evening Legislature sessions

Yesterday it was announced by Deputy-Premier Paul Robichaud that the Alward government would be including evening sittings of the Legislature during the spring session to ensure the many bills planned are brought forth, and the taxpaying public gets as much bang for it's buck out of government as possible.

Liberal MLA Bill Fraser claimed in a local paper it was a ruse by the Alward government to slip House business past the public without the media there to report on it.

The President of the Legislative Press Gallery of New Brunswick, Jacques Poitras, weighed in on the matter this morning.
