An Andrew Coyne article’s title is “Senate should accept it is the problem.” (Times-Colonist, Aug. 17).
To me, it seems like the right- and the left-leaning people all agree with that statement.
Didn’t our esteemed prime minister get elected on the promise to reform the Senate? Has he forgotten?
Now at least he’ll remember that some of his patronage appointments have backfired.
Have we had any good “sober second thoughts” lately? I don’t think so.
At least not nearly enough to justify the $95 million that Google says it costs us a year.
It seems to me that we have an either-or choice: Either make the Senate an elected body OR get rid of it.
Just think of what we could do with $95 million. The mind boggles at that thought.
So let’s just get on with it: Get rid of the Senate and we’ll save big bucks — not just this year but forever!
