OTTAWA — Liberal MP Anthony Rota has been elected Speaker of the House of Commons, beating out fellow Liberal Geoff Regan, who was Speaker during the last session of Parliament and wanted to continue.
Rota, 58, represents the northern Ontario riding of Nipissing–Timiskaming and was a deputy speaker in the last Parliament.
His election to the top job this time is being billed by some as an early sign of how the official Opposition intends to throw its weight around now that the Liberals have been reduced to a minority.
