Happy Thanksgeaster (II)

A wise elf notes that some provincial legislatures, including the Newfoundland and Labrador House of Assembly, reconstitute themselves post-election by having a mostly-ceremonial sitting to swear in the members (and usually also elect a Speaker), followed, not necessarily in short order, by a Throne Speech, which may be many weeks later.

In order to provide an apples:apples comparison, here is the same chart as posted on Wednesday, but amended to measure the break as between election day and the subsequent Speech from the Throne.

While several provincial legislatures grow bigger gaps by this measure, that of Newfoundland and Labrador's House of Assembly in 2007 still takes the crown among the ten most recent re-convenings, today's in Manitoba not included.
