These things take time

The Premier went before the mics on Wednesday and attempted to justify the abolition of the fall semester of the legislature that she and the other 36 members of her caucus were just elected to:
You can't go into the House without legislation. There's a purpose to the House. And the purpose of the House is to enact legislation. And that takes time to prepare. So by the time we get back, it's gonna be — before we get a cabinet sworn in we're gonna be talking at least two weeks or more. And then, time you prepare legislation, get it all written up, get it through its various processes, cause they are stringent, you know, we're talking mid-December.
Indeed.

Exhibit A: the whistleblower protection bill, promised by her party for the first session of the last legislature, in 2008, still missing in non-existent consultations, non-existent study, and non-existent drafting.

I will acknowledge that she did tell everyone her plan on election day, so no surprises. A bunch of disgust given 'how energetic and committed to the job' she is; at least that's what her ads said. She didn't exagerate did she?

So my legitimate aspirations as NLer will have to wait until next year to be fulfilled!
