Andrew Coyne's take on Harpers senate reform proposal
Harper's Senate gambit
The initial response to Stephen Harper’s Senate reform gambit was one of bewilderment. That’s it? An eight-year term limit? And the current inmates of the Red Chamber are, you should pardon the term, grandfathered? Huh?
Was this a wave of the white flag, some wondered, a sign that the Prime Minister had all but abandoned the pursuit? Or was it, as a Globe and Mail editorial pronounced, little more than a disconnected policy fragment, “piecemeal fiddling” in place of genuine reform?
Read the entire piece to see his full speculation and where he speculates it will go.
While it isn't equality the path to equality is being laid. I don't know if I will change my mind about spoiling my federal ballot by writing Triple E senate across it yet.
