The Canadian Senate: Keep It, Reform It or Kill It?
It has not been a great week and a half for the Upper Chamber. Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau was kicked out of his caucus following his arrest for assault. The NDP's Charlie Angus went after Conservative Senator Mike Duffy over allegations the Senator claimed living expenses he was not entitled to. An outside auditing firm is investigating those claims against Senator Duffy, as well as similar allegations against Senator Brazeau and Liberal Senator Mac Harb. And the rally call to reform, or even eliminate the Senate, is getting louder.
