When it's handy that two of 52 MLAs in the legislature are paramedics!

The work of the Nova Scotia legislature came to a sudden halt Monday night when MLA Jim Boudreau fell ill during a speech by the minister of economic development.

A police officer outside the chamber called 911 as two politicians – who were also paramedics – helped out.

"One of our members was feeling quite ill," said Dave Wilson, the minister of health. "So I just lent a hand with a fellow paramedic," he said of Chuck Porter.

I'm hearing MLA Jim is OK.
