Proroguing

2010-03-19

Ned Franks, professor emeritus at Queen’s University, is available to discuss the proroguing of the Ontario Legislature.
“Prorogation is the way a session ends unless the legislature is dissolved for an election.  Between elections there are, in a majority government, normally three or four sessions, and hence two or three prorogations.  It's when prorogation is used to avoid the legislature that the problems occur,” said Professor Franks.
Professor Franks spent more than thirty-five years in the Department of Political Studies at Queen’s University. His work includes explorations into public administration, government accountability, aboriginal self-government, relations between governments and aboriginal peoples, and the public service.
