Conservative Senator Elizabeth Marshall, a former Newfoundland and Labrador Auditor General, says it is "shameful" that the government is seeking approval for new spending but has yet to table last year's public accounts. Former PBO Kevin Page says he sees no reason for delay.

The Conservatives are so excited that they have a political issue with inflation that they are getting carried away.

The Liberal government’s Speech from the Throne acknowledges concerns about inflation, and rising cost of living, and prescribes two things it promised in election campaign - an affordable child care program and efforts to combat rising housing costs. #ThroneSpeech

Today’s Speech from the Throne is, btw, entitled “Building a resilient economy.” It is not, however, mostly about the economy. #ThroneSpeech

There is often a part of a throne speech supposed to reflect the GG, rather than being the voice of the government of the day, in this case focused on reconciliation, urging parliamentarians to build a better relationship between Indigenous and non-indigenous people.

Governor-General Mary Simon started the Throne Speech in Inuktitut and her opening words recall the discovery of unmarked graves at residential schools. « We must turn the guilt we carry into action, » she said.

In the interim while a senators waited for MPs to arrive for Throne Speech, PM Trudeau was chatting with senators, making a group guffaw loudly. No idea what was said. Also chatted with Senator Brazeau, whom he once faced in a boxing match.

US President Joe Biden makes no promises to Canada’s Justin Trudeau about a tax incentive for electric vehicles that has sparked trade fears in the Canadian auto sector. He said it hasn’t even passed through Congress yet and there are “a lot of complicating factors.” #cdnpoli
