The House of Commons went into recess today following the last session before the Christmas holiday and will return on January 2, 2010. The Senate will recess tomorrow at noon to receive any last minute bills submitted by the government.
This period is also scheduled for Members of Parliament to return to their ridings and communicate with their constituents. A list of bills and important issues facing the nation will be published during this recess period, it was announced by the prime minister's office of communications.
Speculation increases on the Prime Minister's list for the Order of Lambda Honours List. The Sovereign of the Order is HM the Queen. The Governor General will announce the Honours recipients on New Year's Day, 2010. The procedure is traditional, whereby the Leader of the Opposition provides the Prime Minister with her candidates for the Honours. This list must be presented to the Governor General one week prior to the announcement by her.
Candidates for the Order of Lambda should be sent by email to either the Conservative Prime Minister Raymond Decelles-Smith or Liberal Leader of the Opposition Sandra Lubrano, or by Facebook commentary by December 23, 2009.
