1 POL 2156B Document Analysis Assignment (Due in class November 15, 2011) Name ___________________________ Student Number ___________________ At the beginning of each legislative session at the federal or provincial level in Canada, the Governor General or Lieutenant Governor reads a speech in the legislature, prepared by the government of the day, which outlines the government’s agenda in the upcoming legislative session. Throne speeches are not legislation, but at the same time they are something more than the speeches and documents produced by parties during an election campaign, which may or may not include a government’s legislative plans. Throne speeches can tell us something about the priorities of a government in a given period of time. One way we can measure this is by finding out the frequency with which certain terms related to certain policy areas appear in the throne speeches. On the course website you will find four MS Word documents that contain the texts of four throne speeches given in the Ontario Legislative Assembly since 2003: Speech From The Throne November 2003.doc
