Let's face it. A shake up or outright dissolution of the Senate is long overdue.
But you know you're still walking on hallowed ground when Conservative MP Peter Goldring and Conservative Sen. Hugh Segal defend both Conservative and Liberal senators alike from RCMP investigations over alleged illegal spending. While politicians and newscasters of all stripes must be losing sleep over the possibility that their own future entrance to this land of milk and honey may be in jeopardy, sitting senators are working long hours just feeding their paper shredders.
But, you can only fool the public (hopefully) for so long into believing that an unelected, undemocratic government body appointed by prime ministers is somehow good for Canadians.
