NDP puts Check on Senate Reform

Picture by  frankblacknoir
NDP is on the verge of politically pulling down the pants of the great strategizer. With his laser beam focused upon the economy Harper decided to wade into the Constitutional morass of Senate Reform. How much is this costing in legal fees and consultants etc etc?  Jack Layton reading the tea leaves brilliantly intends to introduce a bill to cut funding to the Senate, not eviscerating it but reducing the budget by 2/3. Brilliant, NDP creates a Senate that is all most affordable with no constitutional mess.  Of course Harper will not take the pork away from his acolytes, but it will be a big win for the NDP in the court of public opinion.

  1. Brilliant move by the NDP! I would go further and offer each senator $1 per year for serving in the Senate.
