There is confusion at the Nova Scotia Legislature after the Liberal government temporarily recessed a sitting aimed at imposing a contract on public school teachers. House leader Michel Samson told reporters the bill would be delayed. He says time is needed to allow for hastily organized talks about safety concerns during the teachers' work-to-rule action. Progressive Conservative Leader Jamie Baillie says the government is scrambling in the face of public pressure. He says he believes there is also pressure coming from Liberal backbenchers, given the government's sudden announcement followed a caucus meeting. (Neither Premier Stephen McNeil nor Education Minister Karen Casey were on hand for the house recess vote.)
