Canadians sick and tired of the Senate

Many Canadians, including myself, have been asking to abolish the very costly, appointed, ineffective senate for years with no results.

Many Canadians, including myself, have been asking for the abolishment of the very costly, appointed, ineffective senate for years with no results.

Canadians have also been asking our MPs for a complete review and possible changes to our entire parliamentary system of government and the end of costly ineffective policies such as official bilingualism, equalization payments but also with no results. This lack of effort for decades by Ottawa to achieve changes has created the possible threat of separation by Western Canadian provinces and territories to form a new country, possibly a Republic of Western Canada with a truly democratic and accountable system of government, but no one in Ottawa was listening. I’m not a supporter of the policies of the New Democratic Party, but their motion to abolish the Senate is good motion for the majority of Canadians.
