Parliament XXXIX

Today is the day we've all been waiting for these past couple of months: the opening of Canada's 39th Parliament!

Kickoff is at 1100 EDT with the election of the Speaker of the House of Commons. Will the Conservatives sacrifice one of their own much-needed MPs to parliamentary tradition or will the job stay in the hands of an opposition member?

Don't miss Tuesday's Speech from the Throne and next Tuesday's introduction of the long-awaited Federal Accountability Act.

And most of all, relish the sight of seeing the Conservative Party sitting on the government benches for the first time in nearly 13 years!

Peter Milliken will get it again, no doubt.
