Senate … Too Late?

First Woman Senator in Canada or would that be the  First Woman Speaker of the House?

These adjustments do take time. Ah but what is 10 years, more or less? What can possibly go wrong in ten years? … or 50 years … What difference does 50 years make?  Well for one thing the Old Grey Mare is seldom very grey anymore.  … then again … Does anyone really care about their colour? “If reformed wisely … ” And if not ? Imagine … All that money … 10 Senate salaries … all those perks … How much? … Must be considerable … All that money saved that would then be freed up to go into the new GAI-Canada FUND … Oh didn’t someone ask where the money was to go if the Senate melted away? Ten in New Brunswick alone. Imagine how many GAI incomes that would cover! Get the Senators working in it? Form a standing Senate Committee to determine how many potential GAI dollars would be freed up if the Senate were to be abolished? While they are at it the Senators could also decide on the dollar amount of the individual GAI salary that would be disbursed, which incidently would be the amount that the Senator would be entitled to once there were no more Senate jobs. Of course the Senators might just decide to keep the Senate going as a volunteer organization. That is, after all what some people are suggesting, that anyone receiving a GAI cheque turn their spare time over to community service.

Are any senators speaking out for Canadian people?
