And now the speaker of the house will dip his hands into the cranberry sauce, as is tradition.

This tradition literally proves that politics wasn't meant to be a career...

For anyone who is wondering, the position is considered dangerous because in days long past, the Speaker of the House would inform the monarch (or the monarchs representative in modern Canada’s case) of the goings on in the House, and if the monarch didn’t like what they heard they might have the Speaker executed, hence why nobody wants the job.

Anyone noticed that at 1:12 the retired speaker was going away dancing like he is happy.

Actually kind of refreshing to see, what one might even call, unity.
What a concept!

Oh come on, he was helping. I wanted to see him dig his nails into the ground and absolutely refuse to go up their and see them put blood sweat and tears into forcibly dragging him up to the seat
