Politicians will head home for a nice, long Christmas break after the House of Assembly shut down Tuesday afternoon.
The sitting of the House ran for more than six weeks, and was the longest fall session since 2003, when the PC Party came into government.
Opposition politicians have complained that it was a mostly non-contentious sitting, with only a couple dozen pieces of legislation and the vast majority of it falling into the “housekeeping” category.
One person who will probably be disappointed by the news of the House of Assembly closure is newly elected Liberal MHA Sam Slade.
Slade won a byelection in Carbonear-Harbour Grace in November, but he won't be officially sworn in as an MHA until today — one day after the legislature closes.
He'll have to wait until March when the spring session gets underway to take his seat in the House of Assembly.
