Parliament to resume “shortly”

In the meantime, Harper to decide on cabinet


In keeping with tradition, Prime Minister Stephen Harper met with Governor General David Johnston on Wednesday to announce that he’s going to form a government. It’s going to be a straightforward process for Harper, whose Conservative party won 167 of 308 seats in Monday’s election. However, Harper didn’t set a date for when Parliament will resume, saying only that it will take place “shortly.” In the meantime, Harper will decide who will fill a handful of cabinet openings, including Foreign Affairs minister, Intergovernmental Affairs Minister, Veteran Affairs Minister and State for Sport Minister.

  1. I'm very interested to see who will fill the position of Foreign Affairs minister. I'm interested in seeing who Harper choses to fill all the other positions and any shuffles he'll make.

  2. in keeping with tradition…harper will resume parliament when ever it durn well pleases him!

  3. Chris Alexander.

  4. Apparently 40% of the country don't care if Parliament resumes — they voted for Harper! He'll shut it down as soon as someone challenges his authority…

    I feel like I live among zombies…
