Oh and on the topic of the Senator himself, quite frankly I see very little reason for the senate as a whole to exist at all.

Beyond the pretentious (and false) idea that it is a "Sober second thought" rather than a rubber stamp (Something like the Governor General)
That's working out reeeeeal well for Queensland.

.... What is?

I mean, I know they got rid of their equivalent of a senate.... But wasn't that a bit shy of 100 years ago?

nobody gives a s**t about canada. rofl

seriously, though... what ******** jerk gets elected to the senate to not show up and argue over laws?


Our senate is appointed by the Prime Minister, not elected.

That being said, they are also a rubber stamp.

The House of Commons is the elected body.

It's pretty irksome the way people use the term "Uncle Tom." Tom is just an old man who's learned to forgive the world for stepping on him, he never did anything spiteful or malicious to anybody in the book. He actually gets beaten to death to protect the escapees.

I mean, damn, what'd he do to posterity to get this bug up its bum? Aside from being a character consciously written to be sympathetic by a contemporary abolitionist, I mean.
