Just as I published my last post and talked about senate reform and criticizing the government, the Prime Minister, just like that, appoints 3 Conservatives to the senate, all who lost in the recent election.
- Josee Vernier, a Quebec MP
- Larry Smith, former CFL commish, former senator
- Fabian Manning, former NFLD MP, former senator
“Our Government will continue to push for a more democratic, accountable and effective Senate,” the Prime Minister in a statement released to the media.With a small Quebec caucus, Harper just appointed many of them to the cabinet, and also needed a bit more Quebec representation in the senate. Fine. For now...
Because, Mr. Prime Minister, this is the last set of appointments I'll forgive you on.
