Number 10: Compton

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

June Xth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Newly minted Federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer must be channeling his "inner Compton" because like Andy, The Right Honourable The Viscount The Lord Baron Earl Sir Spencer Compton was a Speaker Of The House Of Commons before obtaining the Prime Ministership (as Andy hopes to do in MMXIX.) He always hated when MPs bitched & tried to stress him out about being interrupted, this occurred even when the interruptions were for procedural reasons. He had to berate an uncooperative MP in front of school children in the Commons Chamber (much like Speakers today do & have done since the start of parliamentary tradition) for not being respectful of Roberts Rules Of Order.

"No sir, you have a right to speak, but the House have a right to judge whether they will here you."

IInd Prime Minister,
