I would like to know WHY we have Senators, what their duties and responsibilities are. They are suppose to be working for US. The Canadian taxpayers pay their salaries, benefits, allowances, pensions, plane fares, hotels, meals, car rentals, etc. I bet many of them even take their spouses with them. David Tkachuk had the nerve to say that the attendance rule review is not a high priority; he has other things on his mind. Such as what....sitting back and getting paid for doing nothing and laughing at all us taxpayers who have to actually work to support the likes of them.. If they reviewed the rules, they just might have to attend a few more meetings. My God, this is unbelievable. Get rid of them. For heavens sake, isn't there any politician left with a conscience?

I am pretty sure there is no other job in the world that you don't have to show up for work and you will still receive a full paycheck and a pension to boot. What good are attendance rules if they are not enforced. I believe they even have that figured out for Kindergarten students attending school. Wait now that gives me an idea .....

"It's not enough to say personal circumstances, there should be reasons given". That reminds me of MHA Kevin O'Brien's exhorbitant travel claims back and forth to his district. (Gander). His only explanation, "Cabinet business", even though the House wasn't even in session.

the bias liberal media make it sound that its only conservatives that are been naughty in the senate, but in fact liberals have been caught with their hands in the taxpayers cookie jar as well. a crook is a crook, no matter what colour they wear. time as come to get rid of the old age home, OOPS i mean the senate. give the old timers/old betties the boot.
