Throne Speech

For those of you who haven't read it. The Govenor General delivered her speech from the throne on Tuesday. Prime Minister Harper's reaction to the speech puts it into context.

With this speech, it's clear that Stephen Harper recognizes that he's been given a mandate by the people of Canada and that he'll use it. This is simply remarkable for a minority government to provide such strong leadership.

I'll admit before the election I feared that a Conservative minority government would be unworkable because the party had no natural allies in government - I'm glad to be proven wrong. Very likely once the Liberal party rebuilds in two year's time, the government could fall. In the meantime, it looks like we are in store for strong leadership.
