Save the date: Parliament returns on October 16th!

Courtesy of the Prime Minister's Office comes the official unofficial word that Parliament will be back for a brand new session on October 16th -- exactly one month after it was originally scheduled to return. 

That, of course, means that the PM must formally request that the current session be prorogued, which we're told will happen on Friday. Don't expect a traditional Rideau Hall stakeout, however: it will most likely be done by phone. 

Still, at least we have the pomp and pageantry of a Speech from the Throne to eagerly anticipate. Stay tuned! 

In the meantime, let's all not freak out about prorogation, okay?
