CBC.ca politics blogger Kady O'Malley chats weekly with readers on Wednesdays With @Kady. (CBC)

The future of Canada's controversial upper chamber could be determined by what eight Supreme Court justices hear this week.

The country's top court is currently hearing arguments in a reference case from Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government about Senate reform, and whether abolition of the Senate could be done with the approval of just seven provinces, representing 50 per cent of the population. 

Ottawa and the provinces disagree on how to handle the future of the red chamber.

This is happening a week after three embattled Senators were suspended without pay, and as the expenses scandal plaguing the Senate continues to unfold.

Kady O'Malley took your questions and comments about the Senate reference, what the different arguments are, and how Ottawa and the provinces are positioning themselves. Here's the chat recap.
