November 4 is the day. The new government is sworn in. On one hand we have campaign promises. On the other we have obvious priorities. Do they intersect? How much stupidity will the Trudeau administration be committed to from all the senseless litigation courtesy of unconstitutional Harper legislation? There will be as many different priorities as people you ask. Expectations are a bitch. But a majority insulates against immediate demands. With 150 rookies in caucus, Cabinet will be an interesting selection process.
