Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is proroguing the legislature and setting the reset button.
She says her government will deliver a new throne speech Monday.
The throne speech is an opportunity for the Liberal government to lay out a new set of priorities with less than two years from the next provincial election.
Premier Wynne said the government will reintroduce, this fall, all government bills that were before the legislature prior to prorogation, so that debate on them can continue.
This includes election finance reform legislation, which the government intends to reintroduce on September 13, 2016 with all the amendments agreed to at the committee stage prior to the prorogation of the legislature.
It’s still unclear what will happen to private members’ bills.
Most of the legislation for the government’s previous priorities have already been passed.
No sitting days will be lost due to prorogation, as the legislature is convening for the 2nd session on September 12, 2016, which is consistent with the parliamentary calendar established in the 1st session.
