Scrap the Senate...we have heavily paid 'elected' overseers already in place to take care of ur national business...who are kept in-line ethically per a pretty efficient process..known as 'ELECTION'. THE PUBLC MAKES THEM...THE PUBLIC CAN DESTROY THEM-POLITICALLY! The Senate is no more than a PERK doled out per a 'BUDDY SYSTEM. If it's determined that that such a level of governance is required...LET SENATORS BE ELECTED...change the name of the group to ' NATIONAL AUDITORS'...which is a practical name to their very practical 'JOB'. If it is deemed that the Senate is not really necessary, I can easily say "Here-Here". It's time that appointed Senators be turned out into the fields...their gardens to graze. Running Canada is a very serious job...let's have serious (accountable) people running it...NOT PEOPLE IN THE 'SETTING-SUN' OF THEIR LIVES...POLITICALLY, AND OTHERWISE.

Well said PJ. Maybe more independent candidates needed?
