So did you set up the TV trays around the flat screen to watch the throne speech over dinner last night?
What? You didn’t . Why not? It’s like Grey Cup minus all the fun.
The throne speech opened this session of parliament and sets forth the government’s plans for the next term, in this case up to the next election.
Are you not interested?
I watched. Okay I had to, but as I get older I appreciate the pomp and circumstance of it all.
The politics depends on which side of the fence you play but you can’t help but feel Canadian, if you can stay awake.
Especially when they cut to the core issues that bug Canadians, like high cell phone prices and cable TV!
You can try to minimize it all you want but the economy and the environment don’t resonate with the Tim Horton’s coffee clubs like having to buy a whole bundle just to get your favourite channel.
Thomas Mulcair said Harper is stealing his ideas. Well he should be happy his influence has seen the light of day, even if it’s the only way it will ever happen.
Justin Trudeau muttered something from behind his hair about transparency, appearing to be the only thing that really was. Or perhaps vacant is the better word.
Harper sat in his chair like the Dad who just ate to much turkey, leaning from one side to the other passing gas, knowing he won’t have to answer for any of it as he is leaving for Europe today.
Good to see nothing has changed, and it won’t, until the opposition polish their game.
I’m Scott Thompson.
