On Tuesday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that he will ask Governor General Michaelle Jean to end the current session of Parliament, which was to begin September 17th.

MP's will now return to Ottawa October 16th for the second session of the Thirty-Ninth Parliament, which will open with a Speech from the Throne.


According to Souris Moose Mountain MP Ed Komarnicki, the government was able to follow its agenda last spring despite being in minority, but the new session will enable the Prime Minister to lay out a new plan for the country.
