I know!! Having an elected senator move into the senate makes me very very happy!


Too bad Harper couldn't have done the same with Michael Fortier. It would have given him a lot more credibility on the issue of an elected senate.


Being the first PM to ever support and actually initiate elected senators is enough credibility for me. Until I have a better option on this front, Harper gets all my elected senator points.

Nothing at the PMO site so far.

Maybe it is there, the 5 new priorities are up.

As part of ensuring economic security for Canadians, our Government will bring forward a long-term plan of broad-based tax relief for individuals, businesses and families—including following through on its commitment to a further cut to the GST. To complement this, our Government will support Canadian researchers and innovators in developing new ideas and bringing them to the marketplace through Canada’s Science and Technology Strategy. Our Government will improve the protection of cultural and intellectual property rights in Canada, including copyright reform. Our Government will also take measures to improve the governance and management of the Employment Insurance Account.

I thought they were going to wait 4-5 years before taking the GST to 5%.

They gonna go ahead now?

My thoughts so far: the big single crime bill is a daring move. coupled with mention of young offenders this might not go down well with the liberals.

Kyoto burial: masterpiece. Free trade in emissions and more ambitious targets: great ising on the cake!

Security certificates: if it's what I think, then an attempt to introduce that kind of legislation is a poison pill.

I missed the mention of the visual identification of voters... Harper stepped on a rake during that scandal, why would it make its way into the throne speech?

product quality and safety standards - an improvement to health and safety rules is in order.

I think this throne speech is a gamble. But as a newbie I might be quite mistaken.

Our Government will also establish a carbon emissions trading market that will give business the incentive to run cleaner, greener operations.

I don't think that I can support a carbon trading ponzi scheme.

well if the purpose of corporations is turning a profit then the demand for carbon emission rights will be sky high, and running greener than expected would be very profitable and will act more a stimulus than any Al Gore film whatsoever....

The carbon credits will most likely come from China, where they will be manufactured out of thin air and sold to the West. How is any of that going to reduce emissions? All it does it raise the cost of doing business.

You lost me there... China unloads tons of carbon into the world's air, how can any credit come from there? Rather China would be buying the credits just like it buys the world's oil supplies making prices skyrocket.
