Our House: The Dynamics of the Nova Scotia Legislature

This week on On the Record, Off Script we explore the dynamics of the Nova Scotia Legislature

People always seem to draw comparisons between politicians and school children when they visit the House. We have a couple of stories that relate to that:

  • the story of an MLA who refused to give school children tours of the House of Assembly while his colleagues were present;
  • a story from a former school teacher who tried her classroom management strategies on her colleagues;

We'll also hear from:

  • two people who held down the Speaker's chair; and
  • a story form a Cabinet Minister who admired fellow ministers who dodged questions, but tried his best to answer the ones that came his way.
