Goodbye Parliament

The fall session of Canadian Parliament 2010 is now officially over. We adjourn for another holiday season and anxiously await their return. Some people enjoy the sound of silence when the doors are shut, but political junkies like me can't wait to get back to business. Now is when the media slows down because there is not as much to talk about, and the audience for news and political blogs diminishes. I generally experience roughly a 35% decrease in pageviews in the days immediately following the closure of Parliament even more so during Christmas. Last year things heated up during the closure because of the fuss over prorogation, so interest in politics came back sooner than Parliament. We'll see if any Facebook groups pop up this Christmas...
