Political panel, April 25: the Supreme Court on senate reform
Well, so much for Senate reform. That's the word from Prime Minister Stephen Harper today, following the ruling from the Supreme Court of Canada. The government CAN stop requiring senators to have a net worth of at least 4 thousand dollars - but that's pretty much it.
The Conservatives appear to be backing down on the controversial Fair Elections Act, too; today they announced they'll consider some major changes. They're also hoping the robocalls scandal has been put to rest once and for all, after yesterday's report by the commissioner of Canada elections. Our political panel, Julie van Dusen and Susan Delacourt, joined us with their take on all this.
