MPPs Will Break from June until Nearly November

Members of Provincial Parliament will get an extra-long break from Queens Park this summer.

It was announced Thursday that politicians won't be returning to Toronto until after the federal election, scheduled for October 28th.

Normally, the legislature rises in early June and resumes shortly after Labour Day.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath says either Premier Doug Ford wants to campaign for Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer or Scheer wants Ford to hide until after the election.

Government House Leader Todd Smith says politicians will work hard in the summer on policies that will be introduced in the fall.
