    Correct Answer
    B. The Premier is the leader of the province's ruling party and heads the provincial government.
    Explanation
    The Premier of a Canadian province is the head of the provincial government and holds the highest political office within the province. As the leader of the majority party (or the party that has the confidence of the legislature), the Premier exercises executive powers, sets policy direction, and oversees the administration of government affairs and departments. This role is not ceremonial like that of the Lieutenant Governor, nor is it solely focused on education or the justice system, although the Premier does have influence over these areas as part of their broader leadership and policy-making responsibilities.

    True or False an MLA is the same thing as a cabinet minister.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    An MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) is not the same thing as a cabinet minister. An MLA is a representative elected by the people to serve in the legislative assembly of a particular region or state, whereas a cabinet minister is a member of the executive branch of government who is appointed by the head of government to oversee a specific department or portfolio. While some MLAs may also hold cabinet positions, not all MLAs are cabinet ministers. Therefore, the statement that an MLA is the same thing as a cabinet minister is false.

      Local Government

    Correct Answer
    A. Provincial Government
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Provincial Government. Provincial governments are responsible for managing tourism, social services, and housing within their specific province or state. This includes promoting tourism, providing social welfare programs, and ensuring affordable housing options for residents. These responsibilities are typically delegated to provincial governments as they have a better understanding of the specific needs and priorities of their region.
