The Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador has had 46 general assemblies, 29 as the Dominion of Newfoundland.

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.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, assemblies, general, list and/or labrador:

    Religious literature has eminent examples, and if we run over our private list of poets, critics, philanthropists and philosophers, we shall find them infected with this dropsy and elephantiasis, which we ought to have tapped.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Whenever you pray, make sure you do it at school assemblies and football games, like the demonstrative creatures who pray before large television audiences. That is the real goal of the thing. But do not, I urge you, pray all alone in your home where no one can see. That does not get you ratings.
    Garry Wills (b. 1934)

    The conclusion suggested by these arguments might be called the paradox of theorizing. It asserts that if the terms and the general principles of a scientific theory serve their purpose, i. e., if they establish the definite connections among observable phenomena, then they can be dispensed with since any chain of laws and interpretive statements establishing such a connection should then be replaceable by a law which directly links observational antecedents to observational consequents.
    —C.G. (Carl Gustav)

    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    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)
