Mr. Johnston read the seven-page speech in about 15 minutes, the shortest time in recent memory. “Canada succeeds in large part because here, diverse perspectives and different opinions are celebrated, not silenced”.
“Parliament shall be no exception”.
Ms. Ambrose also argued the government made it clear-while placing a promised middle-class tax cut on the first of five substantive pages in the speech-tax hikes in other areas will be unavoidable.
“We will undertake these and other initiatives while pursuing a responsible and transparent fiscal plan suited to challenging economic times”.
The speech said the government would create a new “nation-to-nation relationship” with indigenous peoples, saying it was a path to economic growth.
The speech did not specifically address Trudeau’s promise to repeal controversial provisions in the anti-terrorism legislation passed by the previous Conservative government.
The prime minister’s mandate letter to Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould said Trudeau wants a process that included the provinces and territories, and Canadians may hear more about that today.
After years of sharp partisanship in the House of Commons, the government says that trust in public institutions, including Parliament, has been “compromised”. For instance, the speech does not repeat the campaign pledge to keep the size of annual deficits below $10-billion a year.
“We saw no mention of the agricultural sector, no mention of the auto sector, no mention of the energy sector”, said Ambrose.
Although the government’s plans are well known, Syrian refugees received their own mention in the throne speech, signaling just how seriously the government takes its current commitment. “All of our coalition partners step up and enhance their role in the fight against ISIS and Canada is stepping back”.
Trudeau has said that legalizing marijuana would fix a “failed system” and help remove the “criminal element” linked to the drug. He says his support for the legalization of marijuana is influenced by the fate of his late brother, who was charged with drug possession for having “a tiny amount” of weed before his death in an avalanche in 1998.
NDP: Leader Tom Mulcair said he was happy to see a pledge not to abuse omnibus bills in Parliament, nor will it use government advertising for partisan purposes.
The Liberals promised to strengthen Canada’s relationship with its worldwide allies, “especially with our closest friend and partner, the United States”. “So it’s easy to make these promises; our question is ‘how are they going to pay for it all?'” “Frankly I was shocked that there’s not a single reference to child care in the whole Throne Speech”, he said.
