NDP marks one year with orange cake

The NDP celebrated the one-year anniversary of its historic election win yesterday with cheers and some orange and white cake.

The NDP celebrated the one-year anniversary of its historic election win yesterday with cheers and some orange and white cake.

MLAs and staffers gathered at the party office to hear a motivational speech by Premier Darrell Dexter on the “year of challenge and change” just gone by.

“Thank you all for a great first year,” he told the crowd. “We’re going to continue to grow, we’re going to continue to do an even better job as we go forward over the next number of years.”

Dexter then told reporters he expects greater progress on NDP commitments in the second year. He said much of the first year involved the learning curve of a new government, discovering the surprises and setting the foundation for its agenda.

Sadly, the premier himself was left hungry. After cutting the cake he ducked out to speak to media and by the time he came back into the room no pieces were left.
