When I grow up I want to be: The Speaker of the House of Commons (Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada)
The Speaker is an elected Member of Parliament (MP’s). Their role is to be unbiased and rule over the house by ensuring the government body debates fairly and with respect. The speaker only votes on matters in the case of a tie but keeps their party seat and acts as a liaison between the Senate and the Crown.
