Today, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, delivered the Speech from the Throne to open the second session of the 41st Parliament and outline our Government's agenda.
"Two and a half years ago, Canadians gave our Government a mandate to create jobs, keep taxes low, and help make our streets and communities safe for families," said Prime Minister Stephen Harper. "Despite ongoing global uncertainty, Canadians now have a unique opportunity to build on our ingenuity, our immense natural wealth, and our values and stability, to secure our future and our children's future.
"Our Government will deliver on the commitments made in the Speech from the Throne by creating jobs and opportunities for Canadians, supporting and protecting Canadian families, and putting Canada first," added the Prime Minister. "This is Canada's moment; we will seize it together to help ensure that hard working Canadians prosper."
Some of the key measures that the government will undertake under each of its three principal themes include:
Creating Jobs and Opportunities for Canadians:
Welfare and handouts may temporarily displace fiscal poverty, but a job from economic initiatives can effectively combat fiscal AND social poverty, raise dignity, improve conditions in the community, and have a positive impact on the younger generation approaching adulthood.

Support for our campaign to put consumers first is growing – but the big wireless companies are fighting our government with everything they’ve got.
Thankfully, we’re not in this fight alone – thousands of Canadians, like you, have told us they are standing with us in this fight.
So today, I wanted to let you know something important: our government will not back down.
We’re going to keep fighting for more competition, lower prices, and more choices in the wireless market.
We’re fighting for this because it’s the right thing to do – and we know that’s why you’re with us.
You can help us fight back right now – share this graphic with your friends and family and let them know you’re in the fight with us:
