Tory majority mandate one year later

What a difference a year makes, a year ago today the conservative party of Canada finally attained their long-sought majority mandate from Canadians. The conservatives were quick to act on several long-standing promises such as

  • Abolishing the gun registry
  • phasing out public subsidy for political parties
  • ending the wheat board monopoly

Now it looks like the government is shifting its priorities to focusing on the economy for the foreseeable future. Personally, I would love to see more reigning in of government spendingĀ  but only time will tell.Overall the first year of majority has been pretty productive for the Tories.
