Okay Canada, what did we really get on October 19th? Another overwhelming majority, but of a supposedly different stripe. A reset from the previous decade of Conservative barricade politics. It's looking like yes and no, so far. The Throne Speech was very thin, so we are left with the Ministerial Letters for clues on what this government wants to accomplish.
Changes to the machinery of government, Ministers, Parliamentary Secretaries, Privy Council and Committees are all new. In this episode, we look at the Ministries that directly effect Canadians' lives. What are their specific objectives from the Prime Minister?
In Part One, we look at the following departments -
Employment, Workforce Development & Labour
Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship
Indigenous & Aboriginal Affairs
Public Services & Procurement
Infrastructure & Communities
Families, Children & Social Development
Heritage with Status of Women, Sport & Persons with Disabilities
Innovation, Science & Economic Development with Science, Small Business & Tourism
The Devil's In The Details, people. Tune in and hear the reality
