  • Senate has no applications.

    Most of the people who disagree don't seem to acknowledge the fact that the senate has little to no power in creating laws for Canada. It is a more of a traditional thing and has no use. Billions of tax payers' money is being used without any care by many senators, and I can't take that anymore.

  • Because it isn't right

    We, the undersigned residents of Canada, recognize the following:

    that there is no place for an unelected, unaccountable Senate in our democracy;

    that the $92.5 million a year it costs to run this archaic institution would be better spent elsewhere; and

    that appointed senators, especially those who abuse their privileges, do not represent the interests or values of Canadians.

    Therefore, we call on the Government of Canada to abolish the unelected, unaccountable Senate once and for all.

  • Not abolished just changed

    The Senate may be full of scandals now and be controlled by parties, but it still has a purpose. It provides feedback to the laws the house of commons create. It can be changed that independents get elected by the people and not appointed by the Prime Minister. This removes parties in the senate and then it is creating laws for the good of Canada.

  • Ayo i agree with dis shit

    Yeah yeah yeah this shit is hella dope ayy yah lets tell the damn senate to square up cause this faggot aint gonna be apart of this gay ass government no more, I'm straight outta compton my nigga wbu. Ok i worked really hard on dis shit ayyyyeeee love y'all

  • It lacks importance

    The House Of Commons is important as they help pass laws from the executive branch. The MPs worked their way to that position. Most of the important law making happens in the house of Commons.

    The Senate however is not as important, their only their as a "sober second though" they have the ability to turn down bills yet rarely use that power. Not forgetting to mention the fact that Senators are chosen by the Prime Minister meaning that Harper could pick as many Conservatives he wants filling the Senate with people who are already on his side. It's hard to imagine Parliament without the House of Commons yet much easier to imagine Parliament without the Senate.


    With the recent scandal between senators Wallin,Duffy and Brazeau it also shows that sometimes (rarely however) the senate is even harmful.

  • Are you out of your mind?

    The Canadian Senate shouldnt be abolished just because you feel they arent relevant enough or because once in a while a few Senators have scandals.... If Senates were abolished for those reasons then Senates as we know them wouldnt exist anywhere in the world.

    Im sure that the Canadian senate serves some vital and useful purpose to the passing of legislation in the Canadian government and therefore they shouldnt be abolished...

  • No... Just No

    The Canadian senate just as the British house of lords serves a very distinct and important purpose. Within society it is important to possess both an elected legislative floor that represents the people and an appointed legislative floor. The purpose of the senate is to ensure that some of the nations smartest, wisest, and elite have a means of counteracting the general population. Without it we risk having a tyranny of the majority where minority rights are at risk and policies are enacted that destroy the nation from the inside. Without the foresight of particular individuals we may enact incredibly irresponsible policies,
