The Harper Gov.s 2nd Half Agenda Looks Like The Same Old Soap

One bit, if actually advanced, is mildly noteworthy:

A number of issues expected to be addressed in the coming months that may very well be included in the throne speech, say political observers, include: consumer-focused policies that help the middle class; combatting family violence and cyberbullying; and a renewed emphasis on democratic reform — including new rules on robocalls and reforming the scandal-plagued Senate.

A cyber-bullying measure of any kind is likely turn off the Libertarian corner of the base....Wah!  Wah!  Wah! Free Speech Free Speech Free SPeech!!...and maybe broaden their appeal a bit among progressives.  See if they think the trade-offs make that fight worthwhile.
