The Nova Scotia legislature called an emergency debate yesterday on the H1N1 outbreak.


After spending most of question period debating the government’s handling of the vaccination drive, the Liberals managed to pass a motion keeping the discussion going at the end of the day for an extra hour and a half.


It consisted mostly of questioning and defending the government’s decisions around the vaccine shortage.


This is the second time the legislature has stayed late for emergency debate this fall. Last month the Tories managed to call an emergency debate that went from 10 p.m. to midnight on a looming community college teachers’ strike.
