That close

VOCM reported Sunday:

Government Wants to Introduce New Anti-Smoking Law

VOCM News has learned that the province was very close to bringing in legislation that would have taken steps to improve safety of children and youth, but time just ran out in the fall sitting of the House of Assembly. It's a law which prohibits smoking in a private vehicle when a person under the age of 16 is present. There have been calls over the years for the government in this province to take such action, especially after Nova Scotia became the first province in the country to do so a few years ago. The particulars of the law vary from province to province, but most categorize the vulnerable as under the age of 16. The law will likely form part of the legislative agenda for the spring sitting.
Awwwww. Time ran out. Poor things.

If only the government had some control over how much or how little the House of Assembly sits.

If only.
