from the Throne Set for October 16
Ottawa (September 6, 2007)-- Ed Komarnicki, M.P., Souris- Moose Mountain
“The Second Session of the 39th Parliament is scheduled to commence on October 16th with a Speech from the Throne. This is particularly appropriate as it is now time to set the course for the future with new vision and a new set of priorities,” said Komarnicki.
“When our minority Government took office it set five priorities. In the First Session, we delivered on these priorities and much more. This is quite exceptional given a minority government and a mere 19 months in office,” said Komarnicki.
“There is no doubt that we have turned a corner on how our country is governed. The new direction our country is taking will become more evident as our term in office continues,” said Komarnicki. “The fact is, we are just getting started.”
As the Prime Minister has stated, it is now time to launch the next phase of our mandate. You can expect a continuation of strong leadership focused on results but in a balanced way that ensures a strong economy that will allow Canadian families to continue to prosper.
You can expect the Throne Speech to include priorities like keeping the economy strong and taxes low, tackling crime, preserving and protecting our environment, refocusing on agriculture, asserting and defending Canada’s sovereignty, and strengthening our country as a whole.
“These are our guiding principles and we have just begun. Strong leadership, decisive action and sound principles during our next term in office will make Canada stronger, safer and better for all of us,” concluded Komarnicki.
