WINNIPEG – Manitoba politicians stayed up all night in the legislature to pass laws before the end of the current legislative session.

Proceedings were delayed for about four hours yesterday when the sound system in the legislature chamber stopped working.

Once the problem was fixed, debate on nine bills lasted until 4 a.m. this morning.

Among the new laws is one that will pave the way for ride-hailing services such as Uber and give municipalities authority over the vehicle-for-hire industry.

Another will allow steeper tuition increases at universities, while a third will let medical professionals abstain from participating in physician-assisted death.

The legislature will now be on a break until Nov. 21, when the Progressive Conservative government will announce its plans for the coming year in a speech from the throne.
