That would be "Government Senate Leader Marjory LeBreton...[who tells The Hill Times that]...the Senate expenses scandal-which has rocked the government and the Prime Minister's Office for months, has seen the resignations of three Conservative Senators and one Liberal from their parties' caucuses, along with the resignation of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's chief of staff, and now includes an RCMP criminal investigation-has been 'trying' on Canada's Upper Chamber." A nice six month run for the Red Chamber. Let's see, Senators Brazeau, Duffy, Harb and Wallin have, allegedly, been caught stealing and Senator Fairburn has been caught not knowing what is what but still voting.
Interestingly neither the Tory leader nor Senator James Cowan, the Liberal leader in the Senate, have suggested that the unelected chamber just sucks the big one and should be abolished.
The only Senators in your capital that have any respect carry a big stick with them when they go to work.
