Stephen Harper has claimed that his stacking of the Senate with his own hallelujah chorus, was so he could push through senate reform.
But someone forgot to mention it to the mostly hyper-partisan crew.
Turns out they like it right where they are. They don't have to do a thing, but obey commands.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has a majority in the Senate but he may not have the numbers to push through the reforms he planned for the Red Chamber, Postmedia News has learned. That, say sources, is the real reason the government is showing signs it is willing to compromise by extending its proposed term limits for senators from eight years to 10 or 12, and promising a full study on the election of senators rather than the quick passage of its Senate reform package bills.I mean who would vote for these clowns?
Harper appointed more than 30 Conservative senators to the upper house in the last 2 1/2 years — precisely, he said, so he could pass his Senate reform agenda. But, during that time, some senators have publicly and privately suggested they've changed their minds and no longer support Harper's plan to establish provincial senate elections and impose eight-year term limits.
In fact many have run for election and were rejected.
Just another day in Harperland.
