In advance of Thursday’s throne speech, strategists both professional and amateur had advised Canadians to listen for a certain humility — a new tone that we weren’t accustomed to during the four years Justin Trudeau led a majority government. There would be calls for collaboration, and cooperation, and partnership, all that crap. This is what a lot of people seem to think Canadians want, including whoever wrote the speech that got handed to Governor General Julie Payette.

“Canadians have sent a clear message,” she read in the Senate, referring to the election result. “From young people to seniors, they want their parliamentarians to work together on the issues that matter most to them.”
Political journalism is hopelessly addicted to narratives, however feeble, but this Somewhat Chastened, Newly Cooperative Government idea does not survive comparing Thursday’s speech to the one David Johnston delivered four years ago. In tone, they are almost indistinguishable. “I call on all parliamentarians to work together, with a renewed spirit of innovation, openness and collaboration,” Johnston said in the Senate.
If there’s a big change, it might be less emphasis on big changes. But in the throne speech’s account, that’s mostly because Canadians — despite “sending a clear message” — are really quite happy with what the government has been doing. They just want more of it: an even less partisan Senate, even more action on climate change, even more help for the thriving-but-still-put-upon middle class, more reconciliation with Indigenous people and communities.

There are a few novelties — a somewhat less vague commitment to pharmacare; a much vaguer-than-that suggestion of universal dental care; banning “military-style assault rifles” — but no surprises, and plenty of old hits.
“The government will renew Canada’s commitment to United Nations peacekeeping operations,” Johnston said in 2015.
“The government will renew Canada’s commitment to NATO and United Nations peacekeeping,” Payette said on Thursday.
Trudeau’s government spent three years figuring out that they’re really not interested in modern peacekeeping at all, sent a token force to Mali for a year and brought them home not an hour after the scheduled deadline, despite official requests to stick around. But Liberals gotta Liberal.
As for Canadians wanting parliamentarians to work together on the issues that matter most to them, the inevitable tragedy of our vast dominion is that what matters to some Canadians is often in violent conflict with what matters to other Canadians.

“A clear majority of Canadians voted for ambitious climate action now,” the throne speech argues, in a brave nod to the popular vote. (One thing the 2015 speech promised that 2019’s does not is electoral reform.) But even now, when the mainstream consensus on climate change and public support for action has never been stronger, polls make it very clear that the Liberals’ rudimentary efforts remain a tough sell.
An Ipsos poll conducted in September for Global News found just 12 per cent of Canadians agreed “there is no urgency required to fight climate change if it comes at the expense of our economy and jobs.” But it also found that 46 per cent of Canadians were willing to contribute precisely $0 per year to fight climate change. Almost no one was willing to pay what the government says the carbon tax costs the average family even as it stands.
There is some support for a federal carbon tax among Western Canadians, but there is no denying the fury many in Alberta and Saskatchewan in particular are feeling over this country’s maddening inability to get its resources to market, and a broader sense of being taken advantage of from day one — fury that premiers Scott Moe and Jason Kenney are all too happy to cultivate.

In a single sentence, Payette basically laid out Trudeau’s improbable task: “While the government takes strong action to fight climate change, it will also work just as hard to get Canadian resources to new markets, and offer unwavering support to the hardworking women and men in Canada’s natural resources sectors.”
It would take a hell of a leader to pull that off: to force a pipeline through huge, potentially violent protests to the Pacific without completely alienating climate change voters. For a leader whose family name infuriates Quebec nationalists and the oil patch almost equally to pull it off seems very nearly impossible — especially after four years over which he proved himself to be a profoundly unserious person.
Fairly or not, far too many Canadians simply loathe Justin Trudeau, in much the same way as many of his supporters loathe Stephen Harper, for him to be effective at taking a leading role in the central Canadian issue of our time: national unity. Appointing Chrystia Freeland at Intergovernmental Affairs — she was born in Peace River, Alta. don’t you know! — was a sign he at least takes the national unity issue seriously. But if she’s going to succeed, Trudeau will have to be content playing a supporting role — or even shutting his gob. And he is very, very used to being the star. That’s the most important change in narrative to watch for as this government begins its second term.
