Okay Canada, what did we really get on October 19? 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 Part 2, we look at the heavy hitters, the departments that involve the nuts and bolts of governance and international presence.
