Throne Speech

The introduction to this thing is rather long and drawn out. I was not aware we had to have all these people walk back and forth and repeat these archaic procedures. I do not think though that the Throne Speech has ever been held this late in the day.

Why is the Throne Speech late in the day? My feeling is that this may be an attempt – conscious or otherwise to ape the American State of the Union address (no offense, Americans, but we have our own traditions). The job Harper really wants is President of Canada.
