House of Commons back in session

While most eyes in Newfoundland and Labrador will be focused on provincial politics, news from Ottawa this Fall will likely come fast and furious. After years of hoping and planning, the Conservatives are expected to act now on many of their initiatives that were derailed due to the politics of minority government. However, with a majority, hot topics the Fall are expected to include: the redistribution of seats in the House adding 30 more ridings; the passing of new crime and punishment measures; the elimination or diminishing of the Wheat Board and Long Gun Registry; the issues surrounding Canada’s need to reduce its deficit; and the future of the Senate. Many of these issues will be directly relevant to Federal/Provincial relations, so keep an eye out for how the House of Commons’ agenda will affect the races here back home.
