UPDATE: Last week, a day after CANADALAND’s episode featuring Allison Smith, the Queen’s Park press gallery announced a meeting to be held on Thursday. During that meeting they allowed Smith to have guest pass access to the legislature. They will have another meeting in the near future to determine whether Smith should receive membership. We will update the story once the decision is reached.
After appearing on CANADALAND to speak about being denied access to the Ontario legislature, independent reporter Allison Smith was once again not allowed to watch Question Period — until she tweeted about being barred from the legislature.
