Fostering parliament should be priority for new government

Governing appears to have taken a new, more amicable tone already

Our new PM appears to have a very good cabinet for reclaiming our respect for ourselves as Canadians and raising our image around the world. He will probably get our economy going and our infrastructure rebuilt.

Governing appears to have taken a new, more amicable tone already as even the new interim Conservative leader, Rona Ambrose, is supporting issues like the inquiry into missing and murdered women.

However the biggest challenge is not just raising Canada’s image but to foster governance in parliament to create a respectable functional management system that will make being an elected member something our population will look up to.

Too many people look at members as greedy corrupt individuals. Hopefully Justin and team can change that in four short years. Raising a politician’s image is his greatest challenge.
