Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is expected to mark a political milestone today: his final time rising in the House of Commons as leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition.

Today's Commons sitting is one of two scheduled for August, but the second comes after party members elect Scheer's replacement, bringing an end to a long and sometimes painful process for Scheer that began just after last fall's federal election.

That the House is sitting at all this month is something Scheer himself took some credit for Tuesday as he briefly reflected on his achievements during a news conference.
