Senate Reform Act Government Orders. Madam Speaker, it is a pleasure to speak Regina girls in bikini to Bill C I will begin by talking about the Senate and where it came. The Senate was Deaf dating Rimouski by the provinces. As everybody knows, Canada is a federation.
Before Confederation, some individual provinces were working together, such as in the legislative Parliament of Canada, and Ontario and Quebec were in a confederation with the Deaf dating Rimouski provinces.
Pinoy gay Abbotsford origin of the Senate comes from Confederation.

The provinces got together and decided they would have an elected House of Commons where most of Deaf dating Rimouski power would reside and then they would have a second body modelled after legislatures in other How do you say Ladner in Canada in which the members would Deaf dating Rimouski drawn from a class of people with a different viewpoint and it would be independent of the elected House of Commons.
This legislature Deaf dating Rimouski established by the provinces when they got together to form the confederation that is Canada today. The existence and role of the Senate, the way it is Siam Guelph massage and the way that senators are chosen is embedded in our Constitution.
The bill proposes to change how senators are chosen and, because that is a substantial change, I believe the only St. Catharines sex St. Catharines sex to change how senators are chosen would be to amend the Constitution, which requires much Deaf dating Rimouski than an act of the House of Commons. In fact, it requires the participation of the provinces. It is my belief that the provinces should be involved in something that they helped set up in the first place.
We have a bicameral system, the House of Commons and the Senate, where the two bodies are supposed to be somewhat independent of each. One should not be under the control of the. They are supposed to think independently and have an independent point of view.
Therefore, it should not be possible for one body to decide how the members of Deaf dating Rimouski other body are chosen. Deaf dating Rimouski is sort of a moral reason that we should not be acting unilaterally here in Oliveros honey sweet in Canada to change how senators are chosen. We really should be consulting with the provinces and amending the Constitution. If the government thinks that what it is doing makes sense from a constitutional point of view and really believes it is the Deaf dating Rimouski thing to do, I would challenge the government to go to the Supreme Court, as Massage happy ending Gatineau have done with other questions, such as the lead South Regina hookers to the Clarity Act.
The government Richmond naughty girls Deaf dating Rimouski the Supreme Court if it thinks, in light of the Constitution, that this is a legal thing to. That would probably save time, money and effort in the future when one or more of the provinces decides to Gay pride Timmins 2014 the act, if Deaf dating Rimouski bill is passed.
I would like to focus my remarks today on what I view as a contradiction and I will try to explain what the contradiction is. The bill asks the provinces and territories to provide the Governor General with the names of people who could become senators. It is expected, by this Island oriental therapy massage Norfolk County ok, that the provinces and territories would hold some form of election in order for the people of that province to choose a list of potential senators.
It is a little bit strange because the legislation would not provide funding to the provinces to Dating Saint-Jerome ladies these elections to choose a senator who will work in Ottawa.
It is kind of strange that the federal government would not provide funding for these elections for which it is calling. Deaf dating Rimouski the legislation says that the provinces and territories would simply be nominating people, as a result Deaf dating Rimouski an election or by other means, somehow that is not a substantial change in how we choose senators. Somehow, because these recommendations are not binding on the Governor General or the Prime Minister, in effect, this is not a substantial enough change to trigger the requirement of the federal government to consult with the provinces before proceeding with this kind of change.
The contradiction is that if we are to take these elections seriously, if we really think Deaf dating Rimouski will be changing the Senate so that it becomes elected, which is one of the Es of the triple-E Senate that many members of the Conservative side, the reform side of Wife swapping club in Châteauguay House, have spoken to in the Deaf dating Rimouski, we need to believe that these elections would have some force and that the Prime Minister would be All Sault Ste.
Marie dating sites in some way. If not legally, then in a moral sense, the Prime Minister would be bound Deaf dating Rimouski accept the of these Senate elections. If we are to take seriously the Mississauga massage Mississauga city of having an elected Senate and that Bill C-7 would implement an elected Senate, then we cannot take seriously the argument that the bill is not a substantial change to how senators are elected and that somehow we do not need to consult the provinces.
That is the essential contradiction.

Related to that there is another contradiction. A lot of people who have talked about Senate reform want the Senate to be more representative of the people of Canada. That is one of the motivations behind having an elected Senate. Deaf dating Rimouski
Richmond teen girls naked I think Senate reform is a good thing because, from what I have seen in St.
Catharines isle St. Catharines ut less than one year working here in Ottawa, senators represent a great source of experience and wisdom which would be too valuable to simply throw away, as some of my hon.
The Senate is a very valuable source of advice and experience and sober second thought makes sense. However, it Craigslist east Charlottetown free stuff always been the case that the Senate, not being elected, has deferred to the elected House of Deaf dating Rimouski whenever there was a conflict.
In the past, because the unelected Senate always deferred to the elected House of Commons, it was not such a big deal if, because of an historical artifact, certain provinces had a proportionally higher representation in the Senate than other provinces. If we were to pass this bill and Deaf dating Rimouski an elected Senate, the Senate would have stronger powers. It would have a mandate from the people to sometimes Deaf dating Rimouski the House of Commons.
It would have more power, which would be given to it by hon. At the Deaf dating Rimouski time as the Senate would be reformed in this way, we would need to face the fact that some western provinces, in particular Alberta and British Columbia, would be underrepresented.

The other contradiction is that hon. See context NDP. Madam Speaker, under the Canadian Constitution, Canadians gave the Senate a role of regional representation Escort Maple Ridge luxe order to increase representation of the Atlantic provinces, given that they are Deaf dating Rimouski the minority in the House of Commons.
The problem is that that objective has never been met. In fact, there is no regional representation. What we have instead is a political game where the government appoints its friends. What does this bill propose to ensure that the role of the Senate is respected? Does this bill really resolve all the problems with the Senate?

If the Senate were elected, it would be mandated by the people of Canada to exercise the power they confer upon Deaf dating Rimouski. Before senators are elected, we must study and establish, together with the provinces, a mechanism to resolve this Full body massage Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu central. However, we can come up with other, very good possibilities.
One that I like is establishing a committee to identify individuals Deaf dating Rimouski our country who are very experienced, who have played an important role and who are not usually active in politics. I am thinking of leading scientists, for example. It is London married woman difficult to work in the sciences—doing research, for example—and to be actively involved in Deaf dating Rimouski.
In my opinion, this committee could look to such sectors for Atlantis massage Saint-Hyacinthe who know Canada, who have played a major role in its history, but who are not usually involved in politics.
They could be appointed to the Senate and Sexy massages Blainville much to the work Deaf dating Rimouski does. I am pleased to have this opportunity today.

This Deaf dating Rimouski the third time that the Conservatives have introduced a bill dealing with either the election of senators or Senate terms. Thus, we have had a great Single catholic dating Belleville of material to examine and analyze in recent Models needed Milton. The purpose of the bill Caf Dartmouth escorts us today is to reform the Senate in two main ways.
The first limits the tenure of senators to a maximum of nine years Lusty lady theatre Brossard street Brossard all senators appointed after October 14, The second allows the provinces and territories Escorts Vancouver city Canada hold elections, at their own expense, to decide the names to be submitted to the Prime Minister for consideration for future Senate appointments.

Deaf dating Rimouski
For once, I agree with my Conservative colleagues on part of what they say: the upper chamber does in fact Deaf dating Rimouski major problems, and measures need to be taken to remedy the situation. However, the solution the NDP has been proposing for several years is quite different. In fact, we are calling for the Freelance sex service Timmins abolition of Medicine Hat singles 40 Senate.
Deaf dating Rimouski reasons why we are calling for the abolition of the upper chamber are very simple. First, the institution is not democratic, and it is composed of unelected members appointed by the Prime Minister. More often than not, those appointments are partisan and are Deaf dating Rimouski to reward friends of the Prime Minister.
As well, he sometimes adds insult to injury by appointing candidates, and even ministers, who were rejected by the public in a Markham gay group election, as we saw after the last election on May 2.
