A PROCLAMATION
Whereas Our Parliament of Canada was dissolved on August 2, 2015;

Now know you that We, by and with the advice of Our Prime Minister of Canada, do command and enjoin each of you and all others interested in this behalf to appear in person, on Thursday, the third day of December, 2015, at one in the afternoon, at Our City of Ottawa, for the DISPATCH OF BUSINESS, to treat, do, act and conclude on those things that Our Parliament of Canada may, by the Grace of God, ordain.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, We have issued and caused this Our Proclamation to be published and the Great Seal of Canada to be affixed to it.

WITNESS: Our Right Trusty and Well-beloved David Johnston, Chancellor and Principal Companion of Our Order of Canada, Chancellor and Commander of Our Order of Military Merit, Chancellor and Commander of Our Order of Merit of the Police Forces, Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada.

AT OUR GOVERNMENT HOUSE, in Our City of Ottawa, this thirteenth day of November in the year of Our Lord two thousand and fifteen and in the sixty-fourth year of Our Reign.

By command,
NAVDEEP SINGH BAINS
Registrar General of Canada

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

The first business of the day will be electing a Speaker for the House of Commons which is usually done in a couple of hours at most. All parties vote and the candidates for the job are often people who are well liked by all Members of Parliament. There will also be routine administrative stuff and then the next day the Governor General will come to Parliament to read the Throne Speech giving the details of the Program of Legislations and other business the Government will introduce during the Session. It will give Canadians a good idea of what Prime Minister Trudeau intends to do.
