I was referring to the four bills Harper has put forward to reform the Senate, including the latest one which is being filibustered by the NDP in the House of Commons.

Until the Senate is reformed, Senators must continue to be appointed - the Constitution demands it. The Senate must approve every bill and every budget that comes before Parliament. If PM Harper didn't fill vacant Senate seats, Parliament would soon cease to function altogether. So why don't you support Harper's efforts to reform the Senate, instead of complaining that he is following the current constitutionally required process for filling Senate seats? Or why don't you urge Premier Dunderdale to hold elections for NL Senators? Or offer an idea of your own. If all you can offer is negativity and insults, then you are not helping at all and your column is a waste of space.
