(Grand Moose Tarkin)   It's time to abolish the Canadian Senate. The governors-general will have direct control of their provinces. Fear will keep the provinces in line, fear of the NDP   ( rolluptheredcarpet.ca) divider line

Egoy3k: The senate is a useless vestigial organ of state.

From what I understand, it combines the accountability of the House of Lords with the maturity and statesmanship of the US Senate.

Evacuate Ottawa?  In our moment of triumph?  I think you overestimate their chances, eh.

You think the Canadian Senate is bad when it comes to being paid without being productive, have you seen the Vancouver Canucks play hockey?

Heyo, muh Canadian Peeps!
My Canada cred:
I spent a few choice, formative years growing up on a walleyed-filled lake of the woods, across from which, a short boat ride away, stood misty Canada.
We only had two TV stations that came in with any regularity. One of those was from Ontario.
Not so different. Local news. Sitcoms (King of Kensington) Sports (hockey). Lots of non-verbal cartoons (remember Pink Panther?). Sesame Street's bilingualism efforts focused on French rather than Spanish. I remember going there for a dental appointment.
To this day my favorite Olympic event, summer or winter, is curling (not even kidding)

I guess what I'm trying to say is - and I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this- I apparently have no idea how the government functions.
I mean, I know you have a PM, and a legislature, but... 59 "appointed" senators?
As opposed to?

What goes on up there?
I bought leeches in good faith from you people.

Tr0mBoNe: Yes. A bunch of entitled and appointed rich old white people will certainly let that happen.

Also the Govenor General has a group of Lieutenant Govenors that rule each province with an iron fist. Ours used to be a school teacher and her frailness is all a ruse.

In her defense, the iron fist were because of the knuckle replacements on account of the arthritis.
