Throne Speech Highlights of Interest to the Library and IM Community

The website has published a post with highlights of interest to the Canadian library and information management community from yesterday's federal Throne Speech that outlined the government's agenda for the First Session of the Forty-Fourth Parliament of Canada.

The highlights are broken down into the following topics:

  • Anti-Racism
  • Child Care
  • Digital
  • Reconciliation
On the subject of Throne Speeches, the website of the Canadian Parliament has a complete collection going all the way back to the first session of Parliament in 1867:
"The Speech from the Throne imparts the causes of summoning Parliament, prior to which neither House can embark on any public business. It marks the first occasion, after a general election, or a prorogation, that Parliament meets in an assembly of its three constituent parts: the House of Commons, the Senate and the Sovereign, or the Sovereign’s representative."

"The Speech from the Throne usually sets forth in some detail the government’s view of the condition of the country and provides an indication of what legislation it intends to bring forward. Source: House of Commons Procedure and Practice, Second Edition, 2009."
