What's Going On with the Senate?
It seems there are a good many senators anxious about the already overdue audit reports into their expenses. Complicating matters is the letter they were cajoled into signing that waives all privilege, both Parliamentary and solicitor-client.
Suddenly we seem to have a Senate packed full of Mike Duffys in waiting. From what I'm hearing they're bringing in sawdust by the truckload to cover the floor of the Red Chamber.
The trick now is to figure how this is going to play out in Stephen Harper's election planning. He's got that place heavily larded with his own appointees. 52 Conservatives versus 30 Liberals and 6 independents.
It's hard to see where this is going but we know that this prime minister never turns his back on something that he can transform into an opportunity.
