The Canadian Senate


By Andrew Donogh

Today the Canadian Senate does not do all that much for the Canadian
government. It no longer does the job that it was created to do. It barely
stops any bills that go through. They're paid a lot of money to just sit and do
nothing.
The Canadian Government could work fine without the Senate. Just get
rid of it, and have the governor look at the bills closely before he signs them.
Just in case the governing party try's to pass a bad bill.
Or it could be changed, have less senators that aren't paid as much. Or
change to an American Triple E type of senate. Which stands for elected,
effective, and equal. The Senator should be elected by the provinces and have a
limited time in the Senate. This would make the Senate much more effective and
fare.
If the Senate continues as it is right know people will get more and
more frustrated with it. And soon they wont want it at all. Which probably
wouldn't be much of a problem anyway.
I believe that we should keep the Senate, and just reform it to be more
effective.
