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 spending but only time will tell.Overall the first year of majority has been pretty productive for the Tories.
