Midnight madness at Queen's Park

Ontario's legislature will hold a rare midnight sitting as the government works to push through a bill cutting the size of Toronto's city council nearly in half.  

The Progressive Conservative government called for the midnight session after the opposition parties refused to pass the bill with unanimous consent yesterday.  

The Tories will ask the lieutenant-governor to reconvene the house at 12:01 a.m. Monday to continue to expedite passage of Bill 31.   

Dubbed the Efficient Local Government Act, the bill slashes the number of Toronto councillors to 25 from 47.

Niagara NDP MPP tweeting out he will be there.

Gates says he worked 20 years straight of midnights at the plant and he can handle this.
