Empowering the Senate March 19, 2012

On Monday, in an unprecedented collaboration among Atlantic Canadian newspapers, The Telegram began a detailed examination of the Canadian Senate.

For five days next week, along with The Telegraph-Journal of Saint John, The Daily Gleaner of Fredericton, The Times and Transcript of Moncton and The Guardian of Charlottetown, The Telegram will carry articles that we have developed together. On the sixth day, next Saturday, we will publish an unprecedented joint editorial.

We believe the Prime Minister’s willingness to have each province, in effect, choose its own senators is an opportunity of historic importance. Among Atlantic governments, only New Brunswick has recognized the importance of this moment. 

We hope our series will encourage others to think about how the Senate has failed our region for 145 years and why now is our best…
