CBC News and the National Post both wrote articles about what the public could expect to hear in the Speech, which will be delivered by Governor General David Johnston.

The CPC tried to get the public excited about the Speech by creating a promotional video in English and French on Stephen Harper’s official website and asking individuals for support:

“Consumer-friendly measures”

Yesterday, Industry Minister James Moore appeared on CTV’s Question Period and mentioned that tomorrow’s Throne Speech will highlight the government’s efforts to focus on “consumer-friendly measures”.  Among those “consumer-friendly measures” is a proposed “pick and pay” cable system where Canadians would have a choice of which channels they want to pay for, instead of being forced to pay for bundles.

Canadians appeared to be very excited about this possibility, with a number of individuals tweeting their support for the initiative.
