Newfoundland needs more MPs too! When Newfoundland joined confederation we were given 7 seats, much more than the average population to represenation number of MPs allowed to other provinces. This was done to ackowledge that we were a seperate country. What even happened to this? If other provinces get new seats, Newfoundland needs new ones too in order to keep our ratios correct according to the 1949 agreements.

What a TOTAL waste of tax dollars! Fewer politicians in Ottawa would make much more sense. As for the Senate, don't make me laugh! Taxes would be better spent employing people to dig holes and fill them up again!

30 more to join the lame the limp and the lazy at a time when spending is suppose to be tight. How much of a hit is that going to cost the unemployed tax payer? And for what? Get rid of the senate to pay for it. Dam good ideal if I must say so my self they can then sleep at home instead of in the parliament building and it would make room for the 30 new MPS and their family and friends new positions.
