The real test of national political parties and of national governments. Certainties that have changed to questionables in Canada. Some details of changes encountered when the speaker's government took over in Ottawa. Then, some changes already started by his government. The larger question is what kind of country do we want? A question of culture, not constitution. The difference between unity and identity. The issue of economic realities in Canada. A new budget and a new energy policy. A reorganization of the cabinet system. The medical care insurance system. The Canada Pension. Canada's strengths.
