This almost sounds like “fake news” but in fact it’s true the Ontario PC government has been asked to reduce the amount of standing ovations it gives itself.
On Wednesday it only took two minutes before the gave themselves their first one of the session in the Legislature. This after the speaker told them he had received complaints about the amount they had been giving themselves in the past.
On Twitter, one person says they gave themselves as many as 22 ovations in just 45 minutes.
My favourite quote comes from Government House leader Todd Smith who said when asked about it “We’re an enthusiastic team.”
