Throne speech makes the News of the Day
The speech's reference to the Chinese Head Tax catches the ear:
Canada file - Throne speech promises head tax apology: Prime Minister Stephen Harper's inaugural throne speech (the Canadian version of the State of the Union) explicitly promised "an apology for the Chinese Head Tax" (Canadian Press). No compensation details were presented in the speech (sixth, lead, second, second, second, third, and second items).
There's plenty more, including Zhongnanhai's welcome mat for Hamas, here.
