Both bodies were suspended in 1934 with the creation of the Commission of Government but when the House of Assembly was re-instated in 1949 the Legislative Council was not and the General Assembly became unicameral. The 44th General Assembly changed the name of the province to Newfoundland and Labrador, from Newfoundland, on 6 December 2001.

    At that,
    his small size,
    keen eyes,
    serviceable beak
    and general truculence
    assure his survival—

    Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.
    Janet Frame (b. 1924)

    A man is like a bit of Labrador spar, which has no lustre as you turn it in your hand, until you come to a particular angle; then it shows deep and beautiful colors.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
